A Child\\'s Garden Of Verses

by Stevenson, Robert Louis

Rediscover the delight and innocence of childhood in these classic poems from celebrated Scottish author, Robert Louis Stevenson.From make-believe to climbing trees, bedtime stories to morning play and favorite cousins to beloved mothers.Here is a very special collection to be treasured for ever. 

First published in 1885, the first printing of A Child's Garden of Verses ran 1000 copies by Longhaus, Green and Co in London. This book was not illustrated until the 1896 edition, published 2 years after Stevenson's death. The collection contains about 65 poems, and many of the poems, including “The Land of Counterpane,” take a positive perspective on Stevenson's own childhood which was plagued by sickness. He dedicated the work to his nurse Alison Cunningham.

Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, musician and travel writer. (13 November 1850 – 3 December 1894) Although he died at just forty four years old and suffered from ill health the majority of his life he managed to travel and write extensively in that short period. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Kidnapped, and A Child's Garden of Verses. Although Stevenson fell out of the canon for a number of years, today he is one of the most translated authors and is highly celebrated for his stories.
