1719: Robinson Crusoe was published

It was 1719 and a wonderful new book by Daniel Defoe was published in England.   

It was about a shipwrecked sailor who spent years on a deserted island.   It was apparently based on the experiences of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish sailor lost off the coast of South America in the early 1700's.

By the way, I recently saw this 1953 movie about "Robinson Crusoe".  It was interesting.
