C. Walters, $400 [Fine copy of the author's first publication. Written by Stevenson when barely 16 years of age, it being the outcome of the interest taken by him in the stories of the Covenanters that he had learned in childhood from his nurse. A. Cunningham. Only a small number of copies were privately printed, the greater number of which were bought up by his father. Laid in is a 1 page A.L.s. from Stevenson (signed in full, “ Robert Louis Stevenson "') to C. B. Foote regarding the above work, and which reads :

“ Vailima, C. B. Foote, Esq.

Dear Sir: Everybody is quite right, I was just 16 in November, 1866, and the Pentland Rising in a green cover is my first work, printed by a fond parent. I remember giving Williamson,

[ocr errors]

and strange to say-all these long years—bear him a little aching grudge, for a little momentary cowardice which he has long since forgotten and a good job too, but the photograph I cannot recall. “Ticondarogo' was printed to ensure copyright at home; I never even saw it. The plays, I fear, I cannot help you to, for various reasons. I admire your industry and success; I have always admired collectors, perhaps for their similitude to pirates.

Yours truly,

Robert Louis Stevenson. P.S. Since writing the above, I have found lying about a copy of another early work, never acknowledged, and take pleasure to send it to you as a curiosity.” The G. N.
