London: R. Griffiths, . First Edition Octavo (4-3/4" x 8") bound in contemporary calf with gilt rules; viii, [xviii], 444 pages. Its authorship long attributed to Benjamin Franklin (Thomas Jefferson wrote "by Doctor Franklin" on the title page of his copy), many scholars now think it to have been written by his co-agent in London, Richard Jackson, with Franklin's advice, but there is no conclusive evidence either way. Paul Leicester Ford refers to it as item 253 in his Franklin Bibliography. Howes P-204; Sabin 25512. Old, small ink identification number on the front pastedown. Light wear to the leather, some chipping to the head of the spine; covers secure. Light browning throughout. Very Good or better (Item ID: 013639)
