Background:

Daniel Defoe (ca. 1660– 24 April 1731), born Daniel Foe, was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer and spy, now most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is notable for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularise the form in Britain, and, along with others such as Samuel Richardson, is among the founders of the English novel. A prolific and versatile writer, he wrote more than 500 books, pamphlets and journals on various topics (including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology and the supernatural). He was also a pioneer of economic journalism.

In 1709 Defoe authored a rather lengthy book entitled, The History of the Union of Great Britain; an Edinburgh publication printed by the Heirs of Anderson. The book was not authored anonymously and cites Defoe as twice taking credit for being its author. An evolution expounded in the book which attempts to explain the facts leading up to the Act of Union 1707 dates all the way back to the 6 December 1604 when King James was presented with a proposed embellishment for unification. This so-called "first draft" for unification took place a full one-hundred years before the signing of the 1707 accord, which respectively preceded the commencement of Robinson Crusoe' by another full ten years.

Condition:

Condition is Fair/Good. Wear to edges/hinges/boards/spine, some patches of leather added to front board/hinge, missing some leather at edges, glue to hinges, holding pretty good would handle with care, darkened/flaking spine, Greenock 1819 signature/couple booplates, pages/text block are very good, would probably get rebound.

When you think of buying a book, think about what you would normally pay for one at a normal bookstore nowadays, typically $20.00 to $30.00 for a book with no craftsmanship and history, no mystique, most that I try and sell are truly a work of art in of themselves, as well as a Great Investment that will continue to go up in value and not to mention the Centuries of Wisdom!!!
