Ben Franklin on learning to swim...

Item # 698460 THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, January, 1779 

* Benjamin Franklin
* Revolutionary War

Inside has nearly two pages on: "Useful Hints For Learning To Swim, In a Letter to a Friend, by Benj. Franklin, L.L.D. F.R.S."
Also within: "On the Fatal Effects of Revenge" and: "On Female Conduct" & so much more. Near the back are news reports of the day but I see no war-related content.

Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 inches, very nice condition.

Lacking both plates called for.

Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine but a much more scarce title. The title/contents page features a great engraving of the skyline of London.
