'The Select Works of Benjamin Franklin Including His Autobiography With Notes and a Memoir,' edited by Epes Sargent. 502-page 5' X 7 5/8' hardcover published by Phillips, Samson & Co. (Boston) in 1854. Assumed to be a first edition of this version. The copyright page notes 1853 for the copyright, though there is no indication of any other printing. I encourage you to price this edition elsewhere. Shown in the scan are the frontispiece, a gravure by H.W. Smith titled 'Franklin' from the painting in the gallery at Versailles. The title page opposite has a pen and ink sketch of Franklin. This book is best-described as being in GOOD condition and is SOLD WITHOUT RESERVE. This book has brown boards with inlaid design on cover, back and spine. The spine lettering, 'Franklin's Select Works' with 'Sargent' underneath a half-line are in gold and are clear. While the lemon-yellow endpapers, frontispiece, and title page show modest foxing, the text is otherwise quite clean. One page corner is creased. The manufactured binding shows modest looseness at the hinges but is otherwise nicely intact. There are two small stains (ink?) on the cover and right at the hinge on the cover. Please add $3.25 S/H (Media Mail within U.S.) The book will be professionally packaged but insurance is available at the buyer's discretion and cost at $1.40 per $50 of coverage. Thank you. Paypal accepted and feedback left.
