Overview

Daniel Defoe is widely recognized as the creator of the modern novel, but his influence extends far beyond literature into the realms of history, economics, politics, science, and medicine. This collection brings together for the first time some 500 of Defoe's books, tracts, pamphlets, addresses, letters, and writings on a wide variety of subjects, including business, economics, geography, politics, space travel, history, religion, and world events. The collection is based on John R. Moore's Checklist of the Writings of Daniel Defoe.
