Here is a lovely antique edition of the Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Undated but would have been published in the 1890s by Frederick Warne & Co., London. With one hundred illustrations and super decorative boards. A large book as it also contains the Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe at the end.

Inside the book opens onto dark brown endpapers. With mildly cracked hinges to give the boards a mild wobble, but minor. Has a pencil mark on the dark brown rear endpaper. Has spotting scattered through the text and the occasional brown blemish. With tanning and spotting to the closed outside edges. The book has developed a lean over time.

Light olive-green cloth covered boards have decoration to the front and spine, and gilt titles and bevelled edges. Has some faint dark marks to the cloth and a little rubbing to the cloth at the corners and spine ends. With a light stain mark on the rear board. The decoration, colours and gilt on the front and spine remain bright and this is an attractive book to display.

Your antique copy of Robinson Crusoe will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 20.5 cm x W 16.5 cm, 517 pages, 0.97 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the protective packaging please add a note to the order.
