Benjamin Franklin & Polly Baker: The History of a Literary Deception
Institute of Early American History and Culture at Williamsburg, Va., 1960 - 193 páginas
Hall has made the first detailed investigation of Polly Baker. It leads through the exciting world of eighteenth-century journalism, literature, and statecraft. Ben Franklin occupies a position in the story second only to Polly Baker herself. Evident throughout is the tendency of people, even in an age of enlightenment, to believe what they see--provided they see it in print.
Originally published in 1960.
