Anonymous. By Daniel Defoe. First published in August 1719, shortly after the fourth edition of The life and strange surprizing adventures of Robinson Crusoe, the first edition of which had been published in April of the same year (q.v.). In this variant of the first edition the verso of A4 is blank; the drop-head title on B1 begins 'The Farthfr'; p. 2, line 32 ends correctly 'in my'; the catchword on p. 73: is 'Spa-'; p. 108, line 16 reads 'three old Halberds'; p. 295 is correctly numbered; the text has slipped on p. 353, lines 25--30, giving incorrect line endings. See H.C. Hutchins, Robinson Crusoe and its printings 1719--31 (New York 1925), B1 (pp. 107-112). With eleven final pages of publisher's advertisements. ESTC n47838; Moore, 417; Furbank and Owens 204.

Copy Notes The Soane copy is without the final 5 leaves of publisher's advertisements. Map inserted upside down. Bound as part of a uniformly bound 48-volume set of works by or attributed to Defoe which on the evidence of endleaves variously watermarked '1814', '1808', etc. was presumably assembled around 1810--15.

Binding C19th half calf, marbled-paper boards, gilt-tooled spine direct-lettered in gilt 'Defoe's Works' and 'Farther Adventures Of Robinson Crusoe'.

Reference Number 837
