Aikin, B. L., & Godolphin, M. (1864). Robinson Crusoe in Words of One Syllable. Retrieved from

Mary Godolphin was the pseudonym of Lucy Aikin who undertook translating great literature into single-syllable words so that young readers could enjoy plots that were considerably more interesting than, say, the McGuffey readers of the 1880's or the Dick and Jane primers of the 1950s (still around today as decodable readers in elementary schools). She produced this volume based on Daniel Defoe's most famous work, considered by many to be the first English novel (1719). She also rendered Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and Wyss' Swiss Family Robinson, which she translated as well.
