Massachusetts Historical Society director Stephen T. Riley introduces this superb facsimile of "the only known nearly perfect copy... printed and sold in Boston by Benjamin Mecom in 1758" -- the first separate printing of Franklin's famed "Sayings of Poor Richard." A lovely Christmas keepsake and a tight, pristine substitute for the unobtainable first edition!
