Reader's note

"Virginibus Puerisque" is a collection of short essays and mostly a record of Stevenson’s opinions - which means, largely, of his likes and dislikes. It all comes back to his sympathy with the juvenile, and that feeling about life which leads him to regard women as so many superfluous girls in a boy's game.

“We had each of us some whimsy in the brain, which we believed more than anything else, and which discoloured all experience to its own shade.”

This gorgeous red and gold edition will look lovely on your bookshelf with its decorative spine. Just one of the many antique, rare and obscure books available on our online vintage bookstore.
