Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300061919, Hardcover)

Robert Louis Stevenson, long recognized as a master storyteller and essayist, was also one of the finest and most delightful of letter writers. This is one of eight volumes containing his collected letters. The edition contains nearly 2800 letters. Volumes V and VI cover the period from July 1884 to September 1890 and comprise over nine hundred letters. During this time, Stevenson lived as a chronic invalid for three years in Bournemouth, England; searched for improved health in the United States and the South Seas; and achieved fame and success with "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", "Kidnapped", and "A Child's Garden of Verses". The letters convey Stevenson's courage and gaiety in the face of illness and his affection for his family and friends. They also reveal the devoted care given him by his wife, Fanny Stevenson.
