Robinson Crusoe : His Life and Strange Surprising Adventures, Hardback Book

Robinson Crusoe : His Life and Strange Surprising Adventures Hardback

Part of the Everyman's Library CHILDREN'S CLASSICS series

Description

Defoe's most celebrated story of Crusoe's shipwreck, his resourcefulness and ingenuity in his soliatry life on a desert island and his rescue of Man Friday has been abridged and retold many times since its publication (in two volumes) in 1719.

It even appeared recently in graphic-novel form. In 1968 Kathleen Lines determined to make the original text more accessible to young readers by breaking Defoe's original, continuous narrative into chapters, slightly cutting Crusoe's long meditations, and compressing the relevant bits of THE FARTHER ADVENTURES into a neat Epilogue, so that readers learn what happened to Friday.

The evocative engravings are reproduced from a mid-nineteenth-century edition published by Cassell, Petter & Gilpin.
