Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, was allegedly based on Alexander Selkirk (1676-1721).
A cruising voyage round the world: first to the South-Sea, thence to the East-Indies, and homewards by the Cape of Good Hope, by Woodes Rogers, was published in 1712. Is the earliest known account of Selkirk's adventures.
