A New Family Instructor is one of the least well known of Defoe's writings. First published in September 1727, it was evidently not a great success. Unsold sheets of the first edition were reissued in 1732 with anew title page, and again, with another new title page, in 1742. It has not been included in any previous edition of Defoe's works, and has hardly ever been discussed by scholars. In its own strange way, however, it is a work of some interest, and it is certainly worth attempting to understand what Defoe's purposes in writing it may have been.
