Binding darkened and worn, with chipping to spine ends, old (and now elapsed) repairs to inner hinges between endsheets and text block, endsheets darkened (and rear pastedown bubbled), shaken, one leaf carelessly opened, with marginal chip; a heavily used and traveled copy, with fine provenance. "Second edition" (i.e. second printing of the first edition). A fine family association copy, inscribed by Stevenson's mother on the half-title: "John Balfour from his affect Grand Aunt M.I. Stevenson October 1885." Margaret Isabella (Balfour) Stevenson (1829- 1897), or “Maggie” (as she was known to her family), married Thomas Stevenson in 1848 and gave birth to RLS in 1850. She had a strong and loving relationship with her son. Although quarrels between RLS and his father about religion, his career and his marriage were upsetting to the family, the family remained close. After her husband died in 1887, Maggie went with RLS and Fanny on their travels to America and the South Seas and even settled with them in Vailima. She returned to Edinburgh to live with her sister after RLS died. BEINECKE 195. HAYWARD 297. PRIDEAUX A35.

A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES

Stevenson, Robert Louis

1885. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1885. Original blue cloth, beveled. First Edition, first printing (which consisted of 1000 copies). Stevenson began writing these verses as early as 1881: supposedly after perusing through Kate Greenaway's BIRTHDAY BOOK FOR CHILDREN, he observed "These are rather nice rhymes, and I don't think they will be difficult to do," and then proceeded to try his hand at them. It is hard to believe that the author of DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE and THE BODY-SNATCHER also wrote these sprightly juvenile rhymes. The book is dedicated to Alison Cunningham, "Cummy," his childhood nurse-maid.~The spine lettering of this copy includes an apostrophe shaped like the digit "7", and the word "OF" slightly smaller than any other in the title; other copies have a curved apostrophe and an even smaller "OF." This is the more common state (priority, if any, unknown). (The top edge is gilt, with the others uncut, which is the usual, primary state.)~This is a near-fine copy, with faint soil or darkening of the cloth but with scarcely any wear. A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES is becoming increasingly scarce in collectible condition. Beinecke 193; Princeton 20A copy 3; Prideaux pp 35-39.

1885. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1885. Original light blue boards with blue-grey cloth spine. First American Edition, published a month after the London one. The number of copies printed is not known; however, in our experience the American edition is considerably scarcer than the London one, and the London edition consisted of only 1000 copies.~When the American edition does turn up, it is usually in wretched condition due to the light color and delicacy of the paper-covered boards. This, however, is a very good-plus copy (very minor wear at the extremities, and slight browning -- as usual); There is a Christmas 1885 gift inscription. Beinecke 196; Princeton 20C.

A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES

Stevenson, Robert Louis:

London: Longman's Green, and Co., 1885.. Small octavo. Blue cloth, lettered in gilt, bevelled edges, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Binding darkened and worn, with chipping to spine ends, old (and now elapsed) repairs to inner hinges between endsheets and text block, endsheets darkened (and rear pastedown bubbled), shaken, one leaf carelessly opened, with marginal chip; a heavily used and traveled copy, with fine provenance. "Second edition" (i.e. second printing of the first edition). A fine family association copy, inscribed by Stevenson's mother on the half-title: "John Balfour from his affect Grand Aunt M.I. Stevenson October 1885." Margaret Isabella (Balfour) Stevenson (1829- 1897), or “Maggie” (as she was known to her family), married Thomas Stevenson in 1848 and gave birth to RLS in 1850. She had a strong and loving relationship with her son. Although quarrels between RLS and his father about religion, his career and his marriage were upsetting to the family, the family remained close. After her husband died in 1887, Maggie went with RLS and Fanny on their travels to America and the South Seas and even settled with them in Vailima. She returned to Edinburgh to live with her sister after RLS died. BEINECKE 195. HAYWARD 297. PRIDEAUX A35.

A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES

Stevenson, Robert Louis

1885. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1885. Original blue cloth, beveled. First Edition, first printing (which consisted of 1000 copies). Stevenson began writing these verses as early as 1881: supposedly after perusing through Kate Greenaway's BIRTHDAY BOOK FOR CHILDREN, he observed "These are rather nice rhymes, and I don't think they will be difficult to do," and then proceeded to try his hand at them. It is hard to believe that the author of DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE and THE BODY-SNATCHER also wrote these sprightly juvenile rhymes. The book is dedicated to Alison Cunningham, "Cummy," his childhood nurse-maid.~The spine lettering of this copy includes an apostrophe shaped like the digit "7", and the word "OF" slightly smaller than any other in the title; other copies have a curved apostrophe and an even smaller "OF." This is the more common state (priority, if any, unknown). (The top edge is gilt, with the others uncut, which is the usual, primary state.)~This is a near-fine copy, with faint soil or darkening of the cloth but with scarcely any wear. A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES is becoming increasingly scarce in collectible condition. Beinecke 193; Princeton 20A copy 3; Prideaux pp 35-39.

A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES

Stevenson, Robert Louis

1885. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1885. Original light blue boards with blue-grey cloth spine. First American Edition, published a month after the London one. The number of copies printed is not known; however, in our experience the American edition is considerably scarcer than the London one, and the London edition consisted of only 1000 copies.~When the American edition does turn up, it is usually in wretched condition due to the light color and delicacy of the paper-covered boards. This, however, is a very good-plus copy (very minor wear at the extremities, and slight browning -- as usual); There is a Christmas 1885 gift inscription. Beinecke 196; Princeton 20C.
