This edition of Robinson Crusoe, originally written by Daniel De Foe, was re-written by author Mary Godolphin, to tell the entire story in words of only one syllable for early readers (not an easy task!). Mary Godolphin was the pseudonym for children's writer Lucy Aikin.
There are six beautiful full-page, full-color lithograph plates illustrating the story.
The pages of the text are age-browned, but the glossy paper of the illustrations is still bright and clear. The covers are in fair condition, with soiling and wear.
The book was published by McLoughlin Brothers in New York in 1882. It measures 7-1/4 by 8-3/4 inches, and contains 93 pages.
