Robinson Crusoe, Argyle Press, Hurst & Co., "Arlington Edition". I haven't been able to find a definite publishing date. I found one resource which showed the publication date between 1871 and 1890. The name George is handwritten on the first page with the date 1887. While I was trying to research a publication date I did find the following entry concerning Hurst & Co. - 1871---HURST CO., Thomas D. Hurst, and electrotyper. Hurst was the worst of the cheap reprinters. "Arlington Editions"...his best books...300 bound volumes...twelvemo...sold for $1.00 each but they were discounted in the stores. Described by one critic as "beautiful covers around deplorable paper." Oh well, I only paid two dollars for it.
