Poor Richard's Almanack

In stock

A faithful reproduction of the original Peter Pauper Press edition of Poor Richard's Almanack, circa 1950, the current version contains the same colorful woodcuts ('quaint Cuts by and Unknown Hand') and 18th century design of the original. Printed in hard cover on heavyweight paper stock, this is a great addition to any Franklin fan's collection. Hundreds of delightful aphorisms, carefully selected from many issues of Franklin's popular 18th-century publication: Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise, & Love your Neighbor yet don't pull down your Hedge, & He that lies down with Dogs, shall rise up with fleas; and many more.
