About this Item

Complete in 4 volumes, bound in 4; each volume with half-title and frontispiece illustration; xi + 226 + 243 + 217 + 232 pages; French text; Vol. I with prefatory material on the life of the author Daniel Defoe (1660? - 1731) British writer and businessman, ".Embedded in world cultural consciousness, Robinson Crusoe has never been out of print.In a time when fewer and fewer eighteenth-century novels are being read or even taught, most of Defoe's have become fashionable and significant again as they speak to modern post-colonial concerns and contribute to an understanding of public-health decisions, crime, cities, the family, and political economy. Again and again Defoe seems not just timely, but prescient Defoe calmly developed a narrative voice that did more to establish the perimeters of novelistic discourse than any other writer.One of the few novelists who has consistently appealed to the intellectual and the masses, Defoe has never lost his appeal."

Backscheider in the DNB); printed at De L'Imprimerie Stereotype de Laurens, Aine, Rue du Pot-de-Fer, No. 14; volumes approx. 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" (8.75 x 14 cm) in size; bound in contemporary full light brown polished mottled leather; spines with flat backs, covers with somewhat crude rule outline in blind; red leather title labels; gilt ornamentation; all edges lightly sprinkled red; marbled endpapers; bindings worn and rubbed, bottom quarter of one spine charred with old repair; two others chipped; with flaking and splitting of leather along spine edges; blocks of text are securely sewn; the occasional spotting in the contents; generally in clean, good condition; a nice French language edition of this classic tale.
