About This Item

Franklin Center, Pennsylvania: The Franklin Library, 1984. Leather bound. Fine. Clean, tight, unread copy. Pristine but for light fading to very edges of moire end papers, common in these editions.. Evergreen leather/boards with gilt decoration all around. Gilt lettering and four raised bands on spine. All edges gilt. Silk moire end papers with matching, sewn-in satin place-holder ribbon. No dust jacket, as issued. 369 pp., illustrated with 18th-century engravings. Limited Edition published for the subscribers to The Collector's Library of The World's Best-Loved Books. The story begins with the universal quest: the young man in Britain, torn between his safe home and his hunger for adventure, breaks away from his loving father and sails away into the unknown. After a series of harrowing escapes, he's shipwrecked on a desert island. His lively first-person account shows how his intelligence and education help him survive for many years, and how he uses technology, including guns and tools salvaged from the ship.

Synopsis

The classic tale of a man shipwrecked on a remote island, and his struggle to retain his humanity against the forces of nature, as well as do battle with his own fears and loneliness.
