General Note
Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic adventure stories, with N. C. Wyeth’s iconic illustrations―now available in a collectible two-volume set N. C. Wyeth’s illustrations to Treasure Island and Kidnapped―first published in 1911 and 1913, respectively, by Charles Scribner’s Sons―made his artistic reputation. With a bold mastery of light and color, Wyeth brilliantly conveyed action, character, and setting, lending an extra excitement to Robert Louis Stevenson’s tales of pirates and buried treasure, and intrigue in the Scottish Highlands. Now readers can enjoy this classic author-illustrator pairing in a handsome two-volume set with a new introduction by Christine B. Podmaniczky, a leading expert on N. C. Wyeth.
