Becoming Benjamin Franklin : the autobiography and the life by Ormond Seavey( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike conventional approaches to biography, Seavey's study sets apart the Autobiography and its provenance for special focus. However, like a biography, this is also a study of Franklin's personality as it developed from his birth is Boston to his death. His own self-understanding has posed a particular challenge to the students of his life. The great impediment to biographies of Franklin is that he took charge of the territory first. He was intensely aware of his own identity all his life, and this book takes a more comprehensive view of his writings as manifestation of a developing self
Autobiography and other writings by Benjamin Franklin( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benjamin Franklin's writings represent a long career of literary, scientific, and political efforts over a lifetime which extended nearly the entire eighteenth century. Franklin's achievements range from inventing the lightning rod to publishing Poor Richard's Almanack to signing the Declaration of Independence. In his own lifetime he knew prominence not only in America but in Britain and France as well. This volume includes Franklin's reflections on such diverse questions as philosophy and religion, social status, electricity, American national characteristics, war, and the status of women. Nearly sixty years separate the earliest writings from the latest, an interval during which Franklin was continually balancing between the puritan values of his upbringing and the modern American world to which his career served as prologue. This edition provides a new text of the Autobiography, established with close reference to Franklin's original manuscript. It also includes a new transcription of the 1726 journal, and several pieces which have recently been identified as Franklin's own work

The moon hoax ; or, A discovery that the moon has a vast population of human beings by Richard Adams Locke( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book collects a series of six articles published in the New York Sun newspaper beginning on August 25, 1835. The articles report on the supposed discovery of life--and an extraterrestrial civilization--on the Moon. The discoveries were falsely attributed to Sir John Herschel, perhaps the best-known astronomer of his time. The articles have been attributed to Richard Adams Locke, who never publicly admitted to being the author. Locke likely intended to create a sensational story which would increase sales of the New York Sun, while also ridiculing some of the more extravagant astronomical theories recently published. Even after the hoax was discovered, the New York Sun did not issue a retraction
