Note
  • Part of the library digital collection of Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800
  • A collection of the sayings of Poor Richard, presented in the form of a speech, and variously known as Father Abraham's speech, The way to wealth, and La science du Bonhomme Richard. First published as the introduction to Poor Richard's almanac for 1758. The present edition is the first separate edition
  • Signed on p. 16: Richard Saunders
  • Advertised as "this day published" in the Boston news letter for Mar. 30, 1758. Also advertised in: Maylem, John. Gallic perfidy: a poem. Boston : Benjamin Mecom, 1758
  • Evans entry 8131, for the first edition, 1758, mistakenly describes the second edition of 1760 (16 p., 1 folded leaf; Bristol B2127, Shipton & Mooney 41122). That edition lacks the 'seven curious pieces of writing' found here
