N.C. Wyeth

I inherited Robinson Crusoe from my sister before I could read. I remember that I was looking forward to being able to read it myself. My sister, who is 14 years older than I am, often read it to me. I didn't understand the words, but N.C. Wyeth's illustrations took me there. The book itself was old then. I think it was given to my sister by our mother's cousin Sadie Hill, a rather eccentric and outspoken woman when I met her.

I still have and treasure that edition of Robinson Crusoe. Here is the full original text of Robinson Crusoe, with illustrations by N. C. Wyeth. The chapter divisions came later, but are included here for readability.
