Robert Louis Stevenson
Ian Duncan

Oxford World's Classics

  • A new edition of one of Robert Louis Stevenson's most popular and enduring works, an exciting adventure story and a key work of nineteenth-century fiction and of Scottish literature.
  • The only critical edition of the 1895 edition, the last to be corrected by the author before his death.
  • Ian Duncan's introduction examines the novel's genesis and influence, its literary contexts in the historical novel and adventure fiction (from Walter Scott to Alfred Hitchcock), and its abiding appeal.
  • Includes up-to-date bibliography, notes on textual history, full and accurate notes, and a glossary of Scots words and phrases.
  • Includes the map originally printed as a fold-out in early editions, and Stevenson's 'Note to Kidnapped', unpublished since 1922.
