An Historical Relation of Ceylon: Second Edition
Robert Knox

This is the author's unusual account of his capture by the King of Kandy in 1660 and his subsequent detention for the next 20 years. It remains a primary source for details of life in the Kandyan kingdom at the time. After his escape Knox met Daniel Defoe, who reputedly used parts of Knox's account for inspiration in the writing of Robinson Crusoe. A second edition was never published in Knox's lifetime. This book includes additional material prepared by Knox in anticipation of a second edition, edited an annotated by JHO Paulusz. Very Good Paperback in a Good Dust Jacket. Reprint.  688 pages. With an index, a pull out map and approximately several illustrations from the original published edition of 1681. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
