The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe
1876, with fine colour illustrations
Hardback, bound in the original red / brown cloth boards with tipped-in colour illustration to upper board and gilt titling to spine. 17.5 × 11.5cm, 593pp.
Robinson Crusoe's seafaring adventures are abruptly ended when he is shipwrecked, the solitary survivor on a deserted island. He gradually creates a life for himself, building a house, cultivating the land, and making a companion from the native whose life he saves.
This edition illustrated with colour title page and five full-page colour lithographs.
An attractive copy but with some age-related wear. There are several small white marks to the boards (these could be scratched off) and the endpapers are foxed. However, the book is perfectly readable and the inner binding is secure.
