“It is never too late to be wise.”

Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe

 

“One of the most beautiful travel books in figures of the eighteenth century” (Gumuchian)

 

Called the original adventure novel, Robinson Crusoe was originally published in 1719 and depicts the life of a castaway who learns to survive on an island for decades. However, while it saw substantial success with the masses, there were still those that were not impressed. Charles Dickens said,

“…Robinson Crusoe should be the only instance of a universally popular book that could make no one laugh and could make no one cry.”

 

This French edition, printed in 1784, features 15 impressive full-page illustrations including a folding map of the world!
