"Mr. Stevenson's books are not for the shelf, they are for the hand; even when you lay them down, let it be on the table for the next comer. Being the most sociable that man has penned in our time, they feel very lonely up there in a stately row. I think their eye is on you the moment you enter the room, and so you are drawn to look at them, and you take a volume down with the impulse that induces one to unchain the dog."

J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, wrote that terrific summation of Robert Louis Stevenson and his works, so I won't even dare do a review on each of the masterpieces in this collection.

Instead, I'll review the actual printed book itself. By using a dark green leatherette with gilt and red imprints for the cover, this volume will be the star of the bookshelf. The edge pages are gold gilted and the endpapers are marbled. Beautiful. Since every collector should have some form of Stevenson in the library, this edition of four classics is a very good choice.
