The Swiss Family Robinson


Out of stock


Fully titled: The Swiss Family Robinson; Or, The Adventures Of A Shipwrecked Family On An Uninhabited Island Near New Guinea.

This is a beautiful copy of an early (1880s) edition by Frederick Warne & Co. – a “new & unabridged translation” by Mrs H B Paull.

It is undated (as common with Warne publications) but an ownership inscription dates it as pre-1895, consistent with the Victorian era binding.

Aside from the pictured inscription and the beginning of a crack to the frint hinge, this book is in excellent condition.

With the (numerous) original  illustrations; dark green boards and beautifully tooled black and gold decoration. A delight.
