$50.00

Robinson Crusoe was first published in 1719. It was immediately popular. The first edition claimed to be authored by the eponymous character, leading readers to believe it was not a novel but rather a true series of events. Yet this assumption was also understandable given that novels were not clearly defined before Robinson Crusoe. In fact, it is often cited as the first novel in English. A swashbuckling narrative with epistolary and didactic passages, Robinson Crusoe has captivated audiences for centuries. For any collector of classic literature or adventure tales, it is a necessary title.

This collector’s edition is in about-fine condition. In the original blue leather, finely gilt stamped. Raised bands. Gilt spine label. Text block about-fine. Gilt edges. Only minor rubbing to gilt on fore-edge. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in.
