DEFOE (Daniel). 1660(?)-1731

See William Lee, A chronological catalogue of the works of Daniel



160 DEFOE

Defoe (London, 1869. 8) reprinted (12 copies only) from his Life of
Defoe, which may be usefully supplemented from the catalogues of the
Huth sale (June 1912, nn. 2105-2297) and the Wrenn Library.

In this handbook, it has seemed advisable to include only three or four
of Defoe's innumerable works.

Robinson Crusoe [vol. I]. London, W. Taylor [April]
1719. 8. Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, being the
second and last Part of his Life [vol. II]. London, W. Taylor,
1719. 8. Serious Reflections during the Life and surprising
Adventures of Robinson Crusoe [vol. III]. London, 1720. 8.

There are two or three variations between copies of the first edition:
it is commonly believed (without any decisive reason) that copies of the
earliest issue have in vol. I the misprint apyly for apply in the preface,
in vol. II, p. 295 wrongly numbered 215 and the verso of the last page
of the preface blank.

^Irrespective of these "points" good sets are worth about $1000.
223 Sotheby's, 4 Dec. 1902, n. 403, vol. I only, partly on thick paper,
orig. calf; 307 Sotheby's, 18 May 1903, n. 309, orig. calf; $1425 Hoe

$1000 Ives (Apr. 1915, n. 211) by Riviere; $2050 Wallace (March 1920,
n. 302) calf, by Pratt (Amherst copy).

Robinson Crusoe also appeared serially in nos. 125 to 289 of The Orig-
inal London Post beginning 7 October 1719. The Grenville set in the
Brit. Mus. is very defective, but a fine set (from the Bliss coll.), only want-
ing one number, was sold 115 Gott (March 1908, n. 79) and again 50
Gott (July 1910, n. 282) ; it now belongs to Mr. A. E. Newton.

The Life and strange surprizing Adventures of Robeson
Cruso. London, printed for the Book-Sellers of London and
Westminster, 1719. 12.

The recently discovered and much discussed "o" edition, doubtless a
very early piracy, badly printed, but showing textual variations possibly
derived from De Foe's proof sheets.
