About this Item: Henry Holt and Company, New Yok, 1915. Hard Cover. Condition: Fair. Pogany, Willy (illustrator). First Edition. Rare classic gem of children's illustrated literature. Circa 1915 litho on board concertina or accordian book. The front side has linked illustrations by Willy Pogany with a story caption at the base. Unique fold-out panorama with sixteen charming color drawings. The reverse includes fourteen panels of text condensed from Defoe's tale. Matching boards, some corner, edge wear, discoloration. Cover features charming illustration of boy Robinson, rifle in hand looking out to sea w/his trusty terrier in subdued blue and beige hues. 'Accordian' style fold-out leaves some discoloration. Unique, intact rarity. Daniel Defoe was nearly 60 years old when he published Robinson Crusoe, his first novel, in 1719. This adaptation for children of an English mariner, sole survivor of a shipwreck, who manages to survive for 28 years on a deserted island in the South Pacific is a stirring depiction of loneliness and isolation as Crusoe builds a house, teaches himself to grow corn and barley, and bakes bread. The book was based on the true tale of a sailor named Alexander Selkirk, but Defoe inserts his own preoccupations into the story. Long fascinated by travel, questions of identity, and the minutiae of daily life, Defoe makes Crusoe's saga of survival into the story of a man who takes control of his own life and overcomes hardships and difficulties in order not only to survive but to prosper. With the introduction of the faithful Friday, who has been taken prisoner by a band of cannibals, Defoe goes further, and explores the concepts of personal liberty and colonialism. The book is part of the series, "Willy Pogany Children." Measures 5 1/4" x 6". A solid, intact rarity. Printed by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, London. Insured post. Willy Pogany (1882-1955) was a prolific Hungarian book illustrator best known for his pen and ink drawings of myths and fables such as the German legend of Tannhauser and Goethe's Faust. A large portion of Pogany's work can be termed Art Nouveau. Pogany's artistic style is heavily fairy-tale orientated and often features motifs of mythical animals such as nymphs and pixies. His dreamy colour illustrations are exemplified by the simple colorful imagery in this children's tale. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 019095
