    Robert Louis Stevenson
    Selected Novels
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894) was a major Scottish novelist, essayist and poet whose classic works of fiction, notable for their memorable characters, style and observations of the human condition, remain widely read and loved today. This selected collection presents his most famous two novels – ‘Treasure Island’ and ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ – in a single volume.

    The Diary of Samuel Pepys

    The Diary of Samuel Pepys
    Richard Le Gallienne’s elegant abridgment of the Diary captures the essential writings of Samuel Pepys (1633–1703), a remarkable man who witnessed the coronation of Charles II, the Great Plague of 1665, and the Great Fire of 1666. Originally scribbled in a cryptic shorthand, Pepys’s quotidian journal of life in Restoration London provides an astonishingly frank and diverting account of political intrigues; naval, church, and cultural affairs; and the sexual escapades and domestic strife of a man with a voracious, childlike appetite for living. “As a human document the Diary is literally unique,” notes Le Gallienne. “It will have a still greater value for its historical importance.”

    A Child's Garden of Verses

    A Child's Garden of Verses
    First published in 1885, poet and storyteller Robert Louis Steven­son’s classic tribute to the lives of children has delighted readers for more than a century. From flying through the air on a swing to building an imaginary world out of blocks to being tucked into bed for a night of sweet dreams, A Child's Garden of Verses is a joyful celebration of imagination, wonder, and what it means to be a child. Lavishly illustrated by beloved artist Barbara McClintock, this new unabridged edition of these classic verses is sure to capture the hearts and imaginations of both young and old for years to come.

    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
    And Other Tales of Terror
    Stevenson's famous exploration of humanity's basest capacity for evil, "Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," has become synonymous with the idea of a split personality. More than a morality tale, this dark psychological fantasy is also a product of its time, drawing on contemporary theories of class, evolution, criminality, and secret lives. Also in this volume are "The Body Snatcher," which charts the murky underside of Victorian medical practice, and "Olalla," a tale of vampirism and "the beast within," with a beautiful woman at its center.
