-The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, 1st Edition
This sequel to Robinson Crusoe, published in the same year as Defoe’s tale of the shipwrecked sailor commemorated in this exhibit, begins with a look at Crusoe’s marriage and children. His desire to return to the island on which he was shipwrecked is great, and upon the loss of his wife, he embarks on a journey that takes him back to the island. Following this visit, Crusoe sets sail for Madagascar, followed by Southeast Asia and China. His travels next take him to Siberia, before he returns to London ten years later, settling in 1705.
This is the first edition, featuring the map of the world “in which is delineated the voyages of Robinson Crusoe” that appeared in the fourth edition of Robinson Crusoe published in the same year.
Daniel Defoe (1661?-1731).
