-Small Edition


This petite edition of Robinson Crusoe, published around 1850, may have been designed to entice a new audience to purchase this title anew. Published by William Leary, it was likely part of a series of cloth-covered books printed in a small format, known as “Grandfather Leary’s Premium Toy Books.”
