    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.”
