Robert Louis Stevenson at the University of South Carolina

The University of South Carolina marked the centenary of Robert Louis Stevenson's death in 1894 with a special exhibition illustrating his life and writing career. Drawing on the Stevenson holdings in the University Libraries' Department of Rare Books and Special Collections and on additional items from the G. Ross Roy Collection of Scottish Literature, the original exhibit included most of Stevenson's first editions, the early magazine publication of Treasure Island and other adventure stories, and a full range of his travel writings, sensation fiction such as the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and later Scottish novels. This online version includes additional materials not included in the original exhibit as well as hypertext links to other sites of interest.
