The Works of Robert Louis Stevenson (The Pentland Edition in 20 volumes)

Stevenson, Robert Louis

London: Cassel and Company, 1907. First edition thus. Near Fine. Bound in three quarter red morocco over red cloth boards. Spines with five raised bands and gilt details. Generally a very handsome set. Minor wear and chipping to the crowns of a handful of the volumes, all hinges and boards tight and without cracking. With most of the 1550 sets bound in standard cloth bindings, the deluxe leather binding is a treat. One of the great writers of the 19th century, Robert Louis Stevenson revolutionized the adventure genre, writing such classics as "Kidnapped," "Treasure Island," and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Although celebrated and well regarded during his own lifetime, Stevenson's reputation fell off in the early 20th century. It was, however, soon rehabilitated, (Stevenson is held in high esteem by such writers as Nabokov, Borges, and Proust) and he currently occupies a place of respect which the quality of his writing assuredly deserves. Stevenson traveled the world and struggled as a writer before finally resettling in his native Scotland, where he wrote "Treasure Island" - which would make him a household name - and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," which would cement his popularity, selling close to 40,000 copies in the half year after it appeared. "As a storyteller, there isn't his equal…" (Jack London). Near Fine.

The Works of Robert Louis Stevenson: The Pentland Edition

Robert Louis Stevenson [Bibliographical notes by Edmund Gosse]

07 - London - Cassell and Company, 1906 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. A scarce set of the collected works of Robert Louis Stevenson. Complete in twenty volumes, this edition was part of a limited printing of 1550 copies, of which this is number 176. Published by Casell and Company in association with several of Stevenson's previous publishers, including Chatto and Windus, Heinemann and Longmans Green, this collection of his works varies from his most popular (Treasure Island, Kidnapped, In The South Seas, The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde etc) to more obscure, such as Notes and Essays Chiefly of The Road, Letters from Samoa and Familiar Studies of Men and Books. As such, the collection sees Stevenson's fiction and non-fiction, writing of his own opinions and experiences as much as creating these for his characters. The collection was published at a time before Stevenson's work would be disparaged in favour ofModernist Literature, which would make a departure from the escapism that prevailed in the popular work of the Nineteenth Century. This dismissal of Stevenson's work failed to take into account the author's literary and social criticism, as well as his humanist and anti-imperialist viewpoints (this latter aspect seen here particularly in The Ebb-Tide), which would perhaps have seen him viewed in more favour. The result was relatively far-reaching in that he would be deemedunworthy of mentionin the definitiveNorton Anthology of English Literature until 2006; a century after this collection was published. A bibliography and introduction is here provided by Edmund Gosse, a prominent literarycritic of his time and a aquaintance and contemporary of the likes of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Robert Browning and Thomas Hardy. Gosse, among his other many achievements is largely credited in helping to popularise the work of Henrik Ibsen to English-speaking audiences. Each volume contains a bookplate to the pastedown, bearing the design of 'Newberry'. Condition: In cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally quite smart, there are some instances of wear to the extremities, as well as sunning to the backstrip and markings to boards. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are bright and clean throughout, aside from the usual instances of foxing to the endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..
