Description: First published in 1732 by Benjamin Franklin when he was just 26, Poor Richard's Almanack was issued annually for the next 25 years. A fascinating compendium of weather predictions, recipes, jokes, and maxims, the Almanack proved extremely popular with readers of the day. This inexpensive volume presents hundreds of delightful aphorisms, carefully selected from many issues of the publication. Arranged according to category, (eating and drinking; men, women and marriage; friendship; money and frugality; religion; professions, etc.) they include such familiar phrases as "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise; " "Love your Neighbor; yet don't pull down your Hedge; " and "He that lies down with Dogs, shall rise up with fleas." A perfect sourcebook for writers, public speakers, and students, this practical and entertaining little book will also delight general readers with its rich store of time-honored folk wisdom.
