Description

"The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe", by Daniel DeFoe, published c. 1890 by Porter & Coates of Philadelphia.

This is a rather pleasant antique book dating to around 1890. There is no date in the book on the title page or and copyright info, however, inside on the first blank white page, there is an 1892 Christmas inscription.

This book is a little rough, both the front and back gutters are split a few pages in, and that has resulted in the the last page (blank) and the back free end paper having extended outward and are thus all chipped up along the outer edge as you see in the images.

Aside from the weak gutters, the text block is actually fairly solid, with a bit of spine cock (the front edge overhangs the back edge a bit). There does not appears to be any other loose pages aside from those noted above, all of the illustrations / plates appear intact. No torn pages, no folded pages, no other writing. The text block edges on all sides still retain the majority of their gilt. The decorated front board is quite nice.

A fun, antique classic! Will make for a really cool gift or addition to your library.

Will ship securely packaged and fully insured.

FAQs

In most cases, I can offer combined shipping discounts on multiple items.

You do not need to do anything. Place your order for your items, and when I am fulfilling your order, I will credit back excess shipping fees to your account.
If an item gets stalled in transit, let me know. I can open a case with USPS to track it down. Please allow 2 weeks for me to work with USPS to locate your package.

If a package is marked "Delivered" but you did not get it, let me know. I will call your P.O. to speak with the carrier directly or have them check the GPS scan on the package. If theft is suspected, I will ask you to file a Stolen Mail Claim with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and your local law enforcement. These records are essential to help catch mail thieves.

If an item arrives damaged, hold on to all packing materials. I require photographs of the damaged item and the packing materials to refund. I may ask that the item be returned to me at my expense.
If you notice the error prior to receiving the shipping notice, let me know ASAP.

Unfortunately, once a package is shipped out to an incorrect address, there is little I can do to get it back.

Please make sure your address within Etsy is correct before finalizing your order.
Art & Prints:

To request a return, please contact me within 7 days of delivery. Late requests may be declined.

The item must be returned to me in the same condition as when we sent it - I.E - "as new", salable condition - for a refund. Return shipping at buyers expense.

Refunds will be credited upon our receipt of the item.

I recommend that you purchase tracking and insurance for the return package, as items lost during return shipping not insured are sadly: lost.

Refunds are for the item price only.

As per our policies page, we are diligent about our descriptions, and in more than 7 years on Etsy, have never had a return.
