Title page and details about publication missing. Setting publication date is difficult, but likely was c.1870-1902. Originally published in German, this copy translated into English by W.H. Davenport Adams from a French version of this often-revised, classic work. With dozens of gorgeous black and white engravings. In full green cloth covers with illustration on cover and spine in black, maroon and gilt. Fading on spine. Interior pages a bit loose; front cover hinge is weak. Inkings & pencilings at endpapers. Despite imperfections, this is an outstanding copy of work first published in 1812 which was believed to have been at least partially based on Daniel Defoe's 'Robinson Crusoe' (1719).; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 690, (4, ads) pages
