The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Benjamin Franklin Illustrated
The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790; however, Franklin himself appears to have called the work his Memoirs. Although it had a tortuous publication history after Franklin''s death, this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written. Franklin''s account of his life is divided into four parts, reflecting the different periods at which he wrote them. There are actual breaks in the narrative between the first three parts, but Part Three''s narrative continues into Part Four without an authorial break

Autobiography Poor Richard, Letters (Classic Reprint)

release date: Jan 13, 2018
Autobiography Poor Richard, Letters (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Autobiography Poor Richard, Letters A remarkable fact about the Autobiography of Frank lin is that it first appeared in a foreign language. While he left his manuscripts by will to his grandson, William Temple Franklin, he had sent a copy of this narrative of his life to an intimate friend, M. Veillard, Mayor of Passy, near Paris. Dr. Franklin died in 1790, at the age of eighty four, and the next year appeared in Paris a French trans lation of his Autobiography. From this first translation it was at once retranslated into English, and rival editions were published in London in 1793. This imperfect version, made from a French translation, and not at all the original Autobiography, was the only text of this remarkable book ever printed in English up to the year 1817, when the grandson, after strange and unaccounted-for delays, at last published in London, in six volumes, the Works of Benjamin Franklin, and among them the Autobiography from the Doctor''s manuscript.

Roger Martin du Gard and Maumort

release date: May 15, 2017
Roger Martin du Gard and Maumort
In the late 1930s and early 1940s, Roger Martin du Gard was one of the most famous writers in the Western world. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1937, and his works, especially Les Thibault, a multivolume novel, were translated into English and read widely. Today, this close friend of André Gide, Albert Camus, and André Malraux is almost unknown, largely because he left unfinished the long project he began in the 1940s, Lieutenant Colonel de Maumort. Initially, the novel is an account of the French experience during World War II and the German occupation as seen through the eyes of a retired army officer. Yet, through Maumort''s series of recollections, it becomes a morality tale that questions the values of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century European civilization. A fragmentary version of the novel was published in 1983, twenty-five years after its author''s death, and an English translation appeared in 1999. Even incomplete, it is a work of haunting brilliance. In this groundbreaking study, Benjamin Franklin Martin recovers the life and times of Roger Martin du Gard and those closest to him. He describes the genius of Martin du Gard''s literature and the causes of his decline by analyzing thousands of pages from journals and correspondence. To the outside world, the writer and his family were staid representatives of the French bourgeoisie. Behind this veil of secrecy, however, they were passionate and combative, tearing each other apart through words and deeds in clashes over life, love, and faith. Martin interweaves their accounts with the expert narration that distinguishes all of his books, creating a blend of intellectual history, family drama, and biography that will appeal to scholars, students, and general readers alike.

An Encyclopedia of South Carolina Jazz & Blues Musicians

release date: May 30, 2016
An Encyclopedia of South Carolina Jazz & Blues Musicians
This comprehensive A-to-Z reference is “an impressive contribution to jazz history and surprisingly good reading” (Michael Ullman, author of Jazz Lives). This informative bookdocuments the careers of South Carolina jazz and blues musicians from the nineteenth century to the present. The musicians range from the renowned (James Brown, Dizzy Gillespie), to the notable (Freddie Green, Josh White), the largely forgotten (Fud Livingston, Josie Miles), the obscure (Lottie Frost Hightower, Horace “Spoons” Williams), and the unknown (Vince Arnold, Johnny Wilson). Though the term “jazz” is commonly understood, if difficult to define, “blues” has evolved over time to include R&B, doo-wop, and soul. Performers in these genres are also represented, as are members of the Jenkins Orphanage bands of Charleston. Also covered are nineteenth-century musicians who performed what might be called proto-jazz or proto-blues in string bands, medicine shows, vaudeville, and the like. Organized alphabetically, from Johnny Acey to Webster Young, the entries include basic biographical information, South Carolina residences, career details, compositions, recordings as leaders and as band members, films, awards, websites, and lists of resources for additional reading. Former host of Jazz in Retrospect on NPR Benjamin Franklin V has ensured biographical accuracy to the greatest degree possible by consulting numerous public documents, and information in these records permitted him to dispel myths and correct misinformation that have surrounded South Carolina’s musical history for generations. “Elucidates South Carolina as a profoundly crucial puzzle piece alongside New Orleans, Chicago, Kansas City and New York.” —Harry Skoler, professor, Berklee College of Music Includes photos
