Life & Essays  Ben Franklin Autobiography leather 1816



Classic Americana in a very early edition (James Madison was President when this was issued).  Included are Franklin's autobiography and a great number of his shorter works.  471 pages 8.5' by 5' by 1.5'.  Leather covers over cardboard boards.  The leather has considerable superficial wear but it is like a well used baseball mitt that is still ready for the big game.  The pages have some moisture marks and some light soiling, as seen in the picture of the title page and the opposing illustration.  None of the pages are any worse than these and some are somewhat better.  There are a handful of loose pages but all are present and all are intact, no pieces are missing.  The pages are rippled with age but still supple.  All of the pages are easily legible.  This is high quality paper and high quality printing that has been gracefully aging for the last 192 years.
