This is an attractive antique copy of Stevenson's first book, a travelogue about a canoe trip that became a pioneering work of outdoor literature. This copy is from the estate of Rex Maughan (1936-2021), major Robert Louis Stevenson collector and archivist who, as Chairman of the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum, greatly contributed to the preservation of Stevenson's estate in Valima, Samoa. Very good. Item #2958
