Biographical note

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish writer of both fiction and nonfiction who had poor health for much of his life. He achieved great literary success in his own lifetime with the publications of the children's adventure novels Treasure Island and Kidnapped and the horror novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
