Robinson Crusoe – Illustrated by N. C. Wyeth
Celebrating 300 years since its first publication, Pook Press releases a new edition of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, with stunning illustrations by N. C. Wyeth. This classic novel, originally published in 1719, is considered one of the most famous English literary works of all time.
Pook Press presents this facsimile of the 1920 illustrated edition, containing 13 nostalgic colour plates by N. C. Wyeth, one of America’s greatest Illustrators.
The story chronicles the dramatic adventures, trials and tribulations of the title character, Robinson Crusoe. During a treacherous sea voyage Crusoe’s ship gets attacked by pirates, leaving his vessel shipwrecked, and he finds himself deserted on an island in the Caribbean. Told from the castaway’s perspective, the book follows Crusoe’s encounters with the island and its inhabitants, his servant ‘Man Friday’, the desperate attempts to escape, and the struggle to survive the island that has held him for 28 years.
