Montblanc Daniel Defoe Writers Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen. It comes with its book style presentation box, both outer boxes and stamped paperwork. The pen has only been used a handful of times and as such is presented in fantastic condition. Only 13,000 pens were produced (including sets) and this is number 10874.
Launched in 2014, as the yearly offering from the Montblanc Writers Edition, the Daniel Defoe is one of the most recognisable pens in the series… with it’s finely detailed metalwork and distinctive feather shaped clip.
The famous English novelist and and journalist is most famous for being the author of “Robinson Crusoe” (1719), which tells the story of a man shipwrecked alone on an island. Defoe is considered as one of the founders of the English novel, with “Robinson Crusoe” marking the beginning of realistic fiction as a literary genre. The shape of the pen refers to the paddle with which Crusoe attempted to escape from the abandoned island. The pattern recalls wooden grain and the fittings are inspired by the original book cover of “Robinson Crusoe”. The clip appears as a feather, in reference to Robinson Crusoe’s faithful companion, his parrot.
This edition features the current style book box, which has been part of the Writers Edition packaging since the very beginning. These newer boxes now take the shape of a hardback book and come with a thick outer case – the first pages of Robinson Crusoe appear before the writing instrument is revealed in all its glory.
