Notes

First UK edition, case-bound issue, which appeared a week after the wrappered issue. The American edition was published four days before the London edition on 5 January 1886. Longmans had intended to publish in December 1885, but delayed publication until January, as they feared the book would be overlooked by readers during the Christmas rush. Stevenson "achieved world-wide success with his 'shilling shocker' Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, a moral allegory about the divided self and the problem of evil, the main incidents of which came to him in a dream" (ODNB).
