This book is in good condition, with royal blue cloth boards. The spine is very faded and has changed to a light tan colour, with the title and an illustration of palm trees in gilt still clearly visible. The front board has an embossed copy of Stevenson’s signature.
The spine is in good condition and the binding is all secure. The pages are clean and free from foxing and pencil marks.
The first page has a handwritten dedication in black ink that reads “To Ruth 29:xii:33 and the New Year”.
Overall this is a sweet little book and would be great for a fan of Treasure Island who may be unaware of Stevenson’s other work.
