This vintage book contains Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes". First published in 1879, this book is one of the most personal and lucid of Stevenson’s works. Half guide book, half social commentary, this volume furnishes an interesting and authentic insight into 'Auld Reekie': the Edinburgh of times past. The chapters of this book include: “Introductory”, “Old Town – The Lands”, “The Parliament Close”, “Legends”, “Greyfriars”, “New Town – Town and Country”, “The Villa Quarters”, “The Calton Hill”, “Winter and New Year”, and “To The Pentland Hills”. Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (1850 - 1894) was a famous Scottish essayist, novelist, poet, and travel writer whose most famous works include "Treasure Island" and "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde". We are republishing this antiquarian book now in an affordable, modern edition - complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
