This is an illustrated antique copy of Stevenson's classic history of Edinburgh, his second book. 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 #3120
