Engraved frontispiece and title page to each volume, and thirteen plates called for (plus an extra plate not called for) between the two volumes. Large paper copy, with a Life of Defoe by Chalmers. Stothard, Thomas (1755-1834), painter and book illustrator, "many of his illustrations were for reissues, as in his celebrated illustrations for John Stockdale's edition of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe in 1790 (a sketch for Robinson Crusoe Building his Canoe is in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford) and it is clear that Stothard's images were an important factor in their popularity" (ODNB) Size: 4to.
