Anonymous. By Daniel Defoe. In two parts with separate pagination and register. One of Defoe's fictional travel narratives published in the wake of Robinson Crusoe. Furbank and Owens 221; ESTC t70641; Moore 469.

Copy Notes Inscribed in ink on page 144 of the second part (cropped at the fore-ege) [Tho?]mas and [Ja?]mes, and on blank final page Labor for Lerning be you / Grow ould. The full verse can be made out on the recto of the frontispiece plate, which is pasted to the flyleaf of an earlier binding: Labor for Lerning be for you / Grow ould for Lerning is better [than?] / Silver & Gould, and possibly the name Lewis. 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.
