Folio. 320 mm. The plates and portraits are original mounted photos by T.F. Scudder, Huntington, Long Island, New York. Scarce private edition portfolio. Very good. Sarah Franklin "Sally" Bache (1744-1808) was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin and Deborah Read. She was a leader in relief work during the American Revolutionary War and frequently served as her father's political and social hostess, as her mother had died in 1774. Sarah Bache was Benjamin Franklin's daughter. Benjamin Franklin Bache (1769-1798) was an American journalist, printer and publisher. He founded the Philadelphia Aurora, a newspaper that supported Jeffersonian philosophy. He frequently attacked the Federalist political leaders, including Presidents George Washington and John Adams, and historian Gordon S. Wood wrote that "no editor did more to politicize the press in the 1790s." His paper's heated attacks are thought to have contributed to Congress's passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts. The favorite grandson of Benjamin Franklin, Bache was often referred to as "Lightning Rod Junior" after his famous grandfather's experiment. He died at 29 in the yellow-fever epidemic of 1798. We may have a few fine reproductions from portraits by St. Memin that would enhance and/or complete this collection - gratis. RARE. PA58. Soft cover. Very Good.
