Amsterdam : L'Honore et Chatelain, 1720. First edition - 1720 1st ed Robinson Crusoe Daniel Defoe Voyages Illustrated Shipwreck 2v French “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 first edition was edited and translated into French by Themiseuil de Saint-Hyacinthe et J. van Effen. Complete in two volumes, a third (or supplemental) volume was written a year later. This first edition is unique in that it was the first edition printed with more than a frontispiece and map.
