Robert Louis Stevenson
TREASURE ISLAND 1884 FIRST AMER ILLUS. EDITION & PRINTING ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON
Roberts Brothers, 1884. This is a very rare 1st American & 1st illustrated edition, in its first printing state. This is validated by several points, including the fact that "Dead Man's Chest" is not capitalized on pages 2 and 7 (see photo of page 2), and the typo "rain" (instead of "vain") in the last line of page 40. (Subsequent printings corrected these errors.) Please note the red marks/arrows on photos are added digitally - they are not on the actual pages of the book! Gray cover with black design/text. Four B&W plates by F. T. Merrill. Cover moderately soiled, book slightly canted. See photos. Corners bumped. Binding split with some sections of pages at split attached by threads (see photo), but all covers and pages still attached. Map is not included, although there is no evidence (e.g. a torn/page remnant at crease) that it was removed indicating a true first issue. Later issue contain map. No internal writing. [Attributes: First Edition]
