Part of the Treasures of the Library of Congress series. A facsimile of two anonymously authored pamphlets, owned by both Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. This Easton Press edition reproduces Franklin's personal copy, with his fiery and terse comments in the margins. Franklin's copy was then presented to Thomas Jefferson after his death, and these pamphlets became part of Jefferson's personal collection, that became the foundation for The Library of Congress.
