Notes

First edition of this collection of short stories in a fine Zaehnsdorf binding. Robert Louis Stevenson wrote the whole of "The Explosive Bomb" and several passages in the other stories, apart from "The Destroying Angel" and "The Fair Cuban", for which Fanny Stevenson was solely responsible. There was also a wrappered issue of the first edition but the cloth issue is much scarcer.
