Robinson Crusoe (Abridged) With " Come To Life " Panorama

By: Defoe Daniel

Price: £45.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Good with no dust jacket


Undated but 1930s. A GOOD ONLY copy in the Original blue cloth-backed spine with black titling, and pictorial paper-covered boards. The Front cover illustrated in full colour. Very Small Chunky Quarto = 9" tall. A Sound copy with all hinges tight but the boards are lightly dust-soiled/worn with age, and very scuffed / EDGE-Worn in places with some heavier wear/paper loss to the four corners. The blue cloth has faded slightly, with some 'waving' of the cloth, and 'pushing' to the head/tail of the spine from storage, but the black titling is still deep and clear. The Publisher's device on the back cover = Tuck's 'The Storyland Treasury' series. The page fore-edges are lightly toned with age and have some light tan spots (pale foxing). Internally No Inscriptions, but the (blank) top corner of the half title has been cut off in a large triangle - probably where a former owner's name had been? The book itself is Undated. The title page and first few pages have some tan foxing (spotting) , and there are some spots here and there, and the odd mark occasionally, in the book, mainly to the bottom and front blank edges. Apart from the foxing overall the book is clean. 152 pp + 6 pp publishers' catalogue at rear. A full colour frontispiece by Howard Davie and one other full page plate by him in the book. An unattributed double page, double stand-up, colour pop-up in the centre, and numerous black & white illustrations throughout the text, most unsigned . An Abridged re-telling for children of the tale of Robinson Crusoe. There were apparently 8 'Come to Life' Pop-up 'Panorama' Gift Books in this series - all following the same format. At the time of listing I have one other for sale - The Water Babies - illustrated by Mabel Lucie Attwell and others. An odd format culled from other 'Tuck' publications, probably to create gift books for children, but the pop-up is in excellent condition. A Raphael Tuck Title. See Images. ; The Storyland Treasury; Small Chunky 4to 8" - 10" tall
