Tools for Navigation: Stories, cont'd


Daniel Defoe. Robinson Crusoe. Pt. 2. London, 1719

Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, published in April 1719, was a near-instantaneous best-seller, and the book’s quick success spurred Defoe to publish a sequel by August. This map of Crusoe’s voyages appeared in a combined edition of parts 1 and 2 that was also printed before the end of the year. The second part of the story extended Crusoe’s voyages beyond the Atlantic.  The former castaway sailed around the Cape of Good Hope to the Indian Ocean, the Spice Islands, and eventually China, from where he returned to England overland.
