Corrected entry: In chapter 4, Robinson discovers the wreck of his ship, and removes his clothing before swimming out to it. Once there, the very first thing he does is to go to the bread room and fill his pockets with biscuits. While he later in the chapter states that he was wearing breeches when he came aboard, the events of the book occurred almost a century before people started to sew pockets into trousers, so it is impossible for Robinson to have these on his "linen, and open-kneed" breeches.Twotall
