Description

First published in 1719, this account of ‘eight and twenty years, all alone on an uninhabited island on the coast of America’ was based on the experiences of Alexander Selkirk, who was marooned on an island in the Pacific Ocean. Most recent editions have been abridged and some have had the religious themes suppressed. It gave birth to the genre of Robinsonnade. Read online at archive.org.

This book is the Main Edition.
