Description:
1895. Folio. 743pp, illustrated with plates, portraits, index to the historical section, index of biographies, and an index of illustrations. The frontispiece, not issued with all copies, is not present here. Published in St. Louis by Woodward & Tiernan Printing Company - Original gilt-stamped calf with a vignette of a longhorn on the cover. An Important and Rare Book - Often referred to as One of the "Big Four" cattle books.Page #247 is separated from the binding but is present as well as one image plate.A couple of the front pages are taped - and several of the interior pages are as well. I'm not an expert - but they did a pretty good job. Overall I think this copy is in Good condition. The Cover and binding I would rate as Very Good. And the binding is still strong and tight - Overall this is a really nice copy of a fairly rare first edition.

Description:
A charming early publication of a popular tale relating a fictitious British hermit's escape and life on a deserted island off the coast of Mexico. The book remained anonymous until 1727 when a rare edition containing a dedication signed Peter Longueville was discovered and to whom the writing is now attributed. This publication is a seventh edition printed in London for the Booksellers. The first fly page is handwritten "Levi Willis His Book 1776", followed by a titled engraving then another hand printed notation reading "Levi Willis His Book Jan 14, 1815".Some believe this book (which was probably first published in the late 1600's) was the inspiration for Robinson Crusoe -- there are enough similarities to give validity to this theory.This may be one of the oldest surviving copies
