Аннотация

Бенджамин Франклин (1706–1790) – один из отцов-основателей США, политический деятель, дипломат, ученый, писатель, журналист, издатель. Он был тем, кто скрепил своей подписью Декларацию независимости США, Конституцию США и Версальський мирный договор 1783 года, чем формально завершил войну за независимость тринадцати британских колоний в Северной Америке от Великобритании. Это три основные документа, на которых выстраивались Соединенные Штаты. Франклин был 15-м ребенком в семье, и, казалось, что его жизнь определена наперед. Однако ему удалось пройти путь от помощника продавца сальных свечей до почитаемого руководителя государства. «Автобиографию» Бенджамин Франклин задумал как рассказ сыну о семье и, собственно, о своем жизненном пути и опыте. Он не собирался ее публиковать. Однако впоследствии появилось желание вынести этот рассказ на широкую публику, чтобы объяснить молодым людям, что такое настоящий успех и как его достичь. «Автобиография» – увлекательная история жизни реального человека, написанная им самим искренне, без прикрас.

It is easy to be persuaded that Mr. John Bigelow's edition of 'The Works of Benjamin Franklin' is likely to be the most complete, the most scholarly and acccurate, the 'Federal' edition. Mr. Bigelow was confessedly the foremost authority on Franklin. Beside the material now in print, carefully collated for the present purpose, so far as possible, with the original manuscripts, he has had free use of the supplementary Franklin MSS. purchased by the State Department in 1881, and not published before his work, and the autobiography has been printed for the first time in any collected edition of Franklin's Works, from the original manuscript, which was in Mr. BigeIow's possession. Mr. Bigelow promises upwards of 350 letters and documents which have never appeared in any previous collection, beside a thorough revision of the text throughout, and a new, chronological, arrangement of matter. The notes and other editorial additions are limited strictly to the illustration of the text. This is volume seven out of twelve, covering the years 1775 through 1779.
