"Omar Khayyam (1048-1122) was a Persian mathematician, astronomer, and a philosopher who was not known as a poet in his lifetime. These verses lay in obscurity until 1859, when Edward Fitzgerald (1809-1883), an English country gentleman, published a free adaptation of this Persian poetry. Essentially a hedonist and skeptic, Omar Khayyam, through FitGerald, spoke with both and earthy and spiritual freedom that stirred a universal response. As a result, The Rubaiyat became one of the best known and most often quoted English classics" -- Amazon.com

The autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Benjamin Franklin( Book )

8 editions published between 1941 and 1969 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blessed with enormous talents and the energy and ambition to go with them, Franklin was a statesman, author, inventor, printer, and scientist. He helped draft the Declaration of Independence and later was involved in negotiating the peace treaty with Britain that ended the Revolutionary War. He also invented bifocals, a stove that is still manufactured, a water-harmonica, and the lightning rod. Franklin's extraordinary range of interests and accomplishments are brilliantly recorded in his Autobiography, considered one of the classics of the genre. Covering his life up to his prewar stay in London as representative of the Pennsylvania Assembly, this charming self-portrait recalls Franklin's boyhood, his determination to achieve high moral standards, his work as a printer, experiments with electricity, political career, experiences during the French and Indian War, and more. Related in an honest, open, unaffected style, this highly readable account offers a wonderfully intimate glimpse of the Founding Father sometimes called "the wisest American."--Amazon.com
