The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

During one of his several adventurous voyages in the 1600's an English sailor becomes the sole survivor of a shipwreck and lives for nearly thirty years on a deserted island.

Excerpt from the Introduction:

In order to adapt this great story of Defoe's to your reading, it is divided into short chapters, long sentences are split into shorter ones, –by punctuation, for the most part, –antiquated expressions are either explained in footnotes or replaced by their modern equivalents, and a number of unessential passages are omitted, as well as most of Crusoe's adventures after leaving the island. Defoe's work, however, is otherwise unaltered, and retains all the essential characteristics of the first edition of 1719.
