Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) is best known as the author of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island, and Kidnapped, but his essays comprise an oft-overlooked trove of gems, intriguing in their content and generous in their scope. This collection of nearly three dozen of Stevenson's best essays―the only anthology of its kind― spans his brief life and includes many of his most celebrated pieces and some others previously unpublished.

From Library Journal:

"It is good to finally have a selection--roughly a quarter--of Stevenson's essays, otherwise available only in scattered reprint collections," said LJ's reviewer of this collection (LJ 5/1/88). This edition includes a scholarly introduction and an index.

It is good finally to have roughly a quarter of Stevenson's essays available in one volume. Their value lies in their vivacity and style; they exhibit a descriptive immediacy and a strong sense of character. " - Library Journal.

Essays include the tender "Falling in Love"; the hilariously perceptive "The Character of Dogs"; his musings on human nature and its frailty in "An Apology for Idlers" and "Crabbed Age and Youth"; as well as his idiosyncratic views on dreams, umbrellas, political activism, and the art and craft of writing. This is a surprising collection of Stevenson's prose, evident wit, and enduring humanity. 290 pages including an index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 002359
