"In the edition distributed to the members of the Limited Editions Club in 1930 (for which edition Mr. Wilson's ... illustrations were created) all of Mr. Defoe's blunders and errors were faithfully followed, including his sometimes weird syntax and spelling ... This Heritage edition, however, is planned for ease of reading ... So the story as it first appeared in 1719 is reproduced here, complete; but the text is corrected"--Page [xii].
