Robert Louis Stevenson Greatest Novels Collection: Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
More than 60 illustrations are reproduced from early edition, bringing the story to life. A collection of Robert Louis Stevenson's best three novels. Books included in this collection:
Treasure Island: For sheer storytelling delight and pure adventure, Treasure Island has never been surpassed. From the moment young Jim Hawkins first encounters the sinister Blind Pew at the Admiral Benbow Inn until the climactic battle for treasure on a tropic isle, the novel creates scenes and characters that have fired the imaginations of generations of readers.
Kidnapped: Kidnapped has become a classic of historical romance the world over and is justly famous as a novel of travel and adventure in the Scottish landscape. Stevenson's vivid descriptive powers were never better than in his account of remote places and dangerous action in the Highlands in the years after Culloden.
Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: Idealistic young scientist Henry Jekyll struggles to unlock the secrets of the soul. Testing chemicals in his lab, he drinks a mixture he hopes will isolate - and eliminate - human evil. Instead it unleashes the dark forces within him, transforming him into the hideous and murderous Mr. Hyde. Today Stevenson's novella is recognized as an incisive study of Victorian morality and sexual repression, as well as a great thriller.
