About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Travels and Essays of Robert Louis Stevenson: Familiar Studies of Men and Books, Miscellaneous Papers In truth, these are but the readings of a literary va grant. One book led to another, one study to another. The first was published with trepidation. Since no bones were broken, the second was launched with greater confidence. So, by insensible degrees, a young man of our generation acquires, in his own eyes, a kind of roving judicial commission through the ages; and, having once escaped the perils of the Freemans and the Furnivalls, sets himself up to right the wrongs of uni versal history and criticism. Now, it is one thing to write with enjoyment on a subject while the story is hot in your mind from recent reading, coloured with recent prejudice; and it is quite another business to put these writings coldly forth again in a bound volume. We are most of us attached to our Opinions; that is one of the natural affections of which we hear so much in youth; but few of us are altogether free from paralysing doubts and scruples. For my part, I have a small idea of the degree of accuracy possible to man, and I feel sure these studies teem with error. One and all were writ ten with genuine interest in the subject; many, how ever, have been conceived and finished with imperfect knowledge; and all have lain, from beginning to end, under the disadvantages inherent in this style of writing. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. PREFACE BY WAY OF CRITICISM. These studies are collected from the monthly press. One appeared in the New Quarterly, one in Macmillan s, and the rest in the Cornhill Magazine. To the Cornhill I owe a double debt of thanks; first, that I was received there in the very best society, and under the eye of the very best of editors; and second, that the proprietors have allowed me to republish so considerable an amount of copy. These nine worthies have been brought together from many different ages and countries. Not the most erudite of men could be perfectly prepared to deal with so many and such various sides of human life and manners. To pass a true judgment upon Knox and Burns implies a grasp upon the very deepest strain of thought in Scotland, -a country far more essentially different from England than many parts of America; for, in a sense, the first of these men re-created Scotland, and the second is its most essentially national production. To treat fitly of Hugo and Villon would involve yet wider knowledge, not only of a country foreign to the author by race, history, and religion, but of the growth and liberties of art. Of the two Americans, Whitman and Thoreau, each is the type of something not so much realised as widely sought after among the late generations of their countrymen; and to see them clearly in a nice relation to the society that brought them forth, an author would require a large habit of life among modern Americans. As for Yoshida, I have already disclaimed responsibility; it was but my hand that held the pen. In truth, these are but the readings of a literary vagrant. One book led to another, one study to another. The first was published with trepidation. Since no bones were broken, the second was launched with greater confidence. So, by insensible degrees, a young man of our generation acquires, in his own eyes, a kind of roving judicial commission through the ages; and, having once escaped the perils of the Freemans and the Furnivalls, sets himself up to right the wrongs of universal history and criticism. Now, it is one thing to write with enjoyment on a subject while the story is hot in your mind from recent reading, coloured with recent prejudice; and it is quite another business to put these writings coldly forth again in a bound volume. We are most of us attached to our opinions; that is one of the natural affections of which we hear so much in youth; but few of us are altogether free from paralysing doubts and scruples. For my part, I have a small idea of the degree of accuracy possible to man, and I feel sure these studies teem with error.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Virginibus Puerisque And Other Papers; Memories and Portraits; Familiar Studies of Men and Books We are all busy in this world building Towers of Babel; and the child of our imaginations is always a changeling when it comes from nurse. This is not only true in the greatest, as of wars and folios, but in the least also, like the tri ing volume in your hand. Thus I began to write these papers with a defi nite end: I was to be the Advocatus, not I hope Diaboli, but Juventutis, I was to state temperately the beliefs of youth as opposed to the contentions of age; to go over all the field where the two differ, and produce at last a little volume of special pleadings, which I might call, without misnomer, Life at Twenty five. But times kept changing, and I shared in the change. I clung hard to that entrancing age; but, with the best will, no man can be twenty-five forever. The old, ruddy convictions deserted me, and, along with them, the style that fits their presentation and defence. I saw, and indeed my friends in formed me, that the game was up. A good part of the volume would answer to the long-projected title; but the shadows of the prison-house are on the rest.

Thus I began to write these papers with a defi nite end: I was to be the Advocatus, not I hope Diaboli, but Juventutis, I was to state temperately the beliefs of youth as opposed to the contentions of age; to go over all the field where the two differ, and produce at last a little volume of special pleadings, which I might call, without misnomer, Life at Twenty five. But times kept changing, and I shared in the change. I clung hard to that entrancing age; but, with the best will, no man can be twenty-five forever. The old, ruddy convictions deserted me, and, along with them, the style that fits their presentation and defence. I saw, and indeed my friends in formed me, that the game was up. A good part of the volume would answer to the long-projected title; but the shadows of the prison-house are on the rest.

About this Item: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1915., 1915. Hardcover. Condition: Good. This edition is something of a mystery: no collection title given within, or any editor--just the titles of the works in each particular volume and the publisher's imprint with date; each spine gives "Stevenson" with a volume number, the titles, and the name of publisher. These are octavo volumes, bound in faded red cloth, with gilt lettering on the spines, which are faded to beige. The deckled side edges and gilt top edges give some elegance to this set. Each volume has a frontispiece, without tissue guard, either a portrait of the author or a scene from a story. The binding is firm but front gutters are cracking in vols. I, V (also rubbed at crown of spine), VI (rubbed at foot of spine, with a ding and spotting), Vol. VIII, & Vol. X, with some rubbing at crown of spine. Vol. IV has name of former owner on front end paper--there are no other markings in any of the volumes. Paper is mildly age-toned and sometimes foxed, but of good quality and very strong. The stories in this collection are as follows: Vol. I - "Treasure Island" and "The Black Arrow;" Vol. II - "Kidnapped" and "David Balfour;" Vol. III - "The Wrecker," Vol. IV - "The Wrong Box," "The Ebb-Tide," and "Island Nights Entertainment;" Vol. V - "The Master of Ballantrae," "Weir of Hermiston," and "Poems;" Vol. VI - "St. Ives," "The Misadventures of John Nicholson," "The Story of a Lie," and "The Body Snatcher;" Vol. VIII - "New Arabian Nights" and "The Dynamiter;" Vol. IX - "Virginibus Puerisque and Other Paper," "Memories and Portraits," and "Familiar Studies of Men and Books," Vol. X - "An Island Voyage," "Travels With a Donkey," "The Amateur Emigrant," "The Silverado Squatters," "Across the Plains with Other Memories and Essays." One assumes that the missing Vol. VII contained "The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde" and "The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables.". Seller Inventory # SKU1015364
