Description/Abstract

This article (after a brief introduction by Mark F. Weimer of Syracuse University) first appeared in McClure's Magazine in 1894. It is the now-rare preface to the classic novel Treasure Island, in which Robert Louis Stevenson comments on how the novel sprang from a map he painted with the assistance of an imaginative schoolboy while recuperating from an illness. A holograph manuscript of the preface is located in the Syracuse University Libraries.
