Robert Louis Stevenson was a 19th-century Scottish author known for his adventure novels such as ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ and ‘Treasure Island’. He also wrote a number of short stories which saw moderate success during his life. One such work was ‘The Merry Men’. Not to be confused with the outlaws in the Robin Hood story, this short story tells the tale of treasure hunts, sea adventure, and shipwrecks.

 

It was published in 1887 as part of a collection of short stories under the name “The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables”. This book features the other works:

  • ‘Will O’ the Mill’
  • ‘Markheim’
  • ‘Thrawn Janet’
  • ‘Olalla’
  • ‘The Treasure of Franchard’

Each of these stories are tales of supernatural, occult, horror, vampires, and devil worship.

 

This 1887 first edition, first issue includes the expected ‘September 1886’ Chatto & Windus catalogue at the end – indicative of first printing.
