robinson crusoe

i used to have a robinson crusoe coloring/activity book when i was a kid and i loved it. it had a real survival in the elements slant to it and i remember thinking i would've been a better leader when i read lord of the flies. pretty arrogant i guess, but then again i was 8 or something. anyways, long story short...i've never actually read this book! but i promise to and will hopefully some day soon.
these illustrations are really special...they were apparently created in the "tropics" so that they would accurately set the mood for the text.

the life and strange surprising adventures of robinson crusoe, of york, mariner by daniel defoe
c. 1900, harper and brothers, new york
illustrated by the brothers louis and frederick rhead

I have this same book you have shown in the pictures. Do you have any idea what it is worth? Thanks for your help.
