Page Talbott, Walter Isaacson, Edmund S. Morgan

The first extensively illustrated book documenting Franklin’s life and work-a must-have for any Franklin enthusiast.

Politician, diplomat, scientist, printer, and civic improver, Franklin influenced every aspect of American life, from his own time to the present. This book, designed to accompany the traveling Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary exhibition celebrating Franklin’s 300th birthday, includes essays by ten prominent scholars that offer an overview of Franklin’s life and cover the full range of his interests and achievements, illustrated by more than 265 color images-portraits, manuscripts, drawings, maps, paintings, engravings, and a plethora of Franklin’s possessions, from teacups to printing equipment. This comprehensive guide, combining new scholarship with unique images-many of which have never been exhibited before-will be a must-have for anyone interested in Franklin.
