Description

~SOLD ~

The Swiss Family Robinson, “an account of the adventures of a Swiss pastor and his family on an uninhabited Island”. Translated by Henry Frith. Published London: Ward, Lock & Co., Limited. New York and Melbourne.

There are 200 illustrations in this beautiful Antique book.  I can’t find another one like it, so I would imagine it would be categorized as rare or scarce.

All pages present and secure.

This book is undated but I definitely know it was printed between the years of 1873 and 1879. This is because it was just after 1879 Ward & Lock opened offices in New York and London, and in 1879 they changed their name again to ward, Lock, Bowden Ltd.
