Daniel DEFOE
Published by J Cooke, (1765)
Used Quantity Available: 1
Seller:
Island Books
(Thakeham, West Sussex, United Kingdom)
Rating
[?]

Book Description J Cooke, 1765. 8vo., two or three leaves nicked at edges, a few with minor marginal loss; eighteenth century full calf, neatly rebacked in calf to style, a very good, crisp, clean copy. First published in 1724, Defoe's final novel was subsequently issued in no fewer than six different versions (1740; 1745; 1750; 1755; 1765; 1775) featuring 'continuations' that carry the narrative beyond the point at which Defoe finished. A number of these splice a new ending onto Defoe’s text, either rewarding the penitent prostitute for her reformation or punishing her marital and maternal transgressions in the original novel. Furbank and Owens demonstrate that the middle four continuations are closely related; the present form being the version of the novel that endured for most of the nineteenth century. In this punitive telling, Roxana’s misdemeanours catch up with her and she dies alone in a debtors’ jail disinherited by her husband. All eighteenth century printings of the novel are scarce.
