Our Samoan adventure by Fanny Stevenson( Book )

11 editions published between 1955 and 1956 in English and Undetermined and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Samoan Adventure of Robert Louis and Fanny Stevenson has long captured the imagination of a wide public. Stevenson's side of the story is well known from his letters, but Fanny's has yet to be heard. Although entirely different in tone - as different as her American background from his Scotch, and her quiet efficient manner from his romantic swashbuckling one - her account is fascinating in its own right, in what it reaveals of Stevenson's remarkable wife as well as of himself and their island existence

The merry men and other tales and fables ; Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

4 editions published between 1905 and 1921 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The first story is] a short novella written in the Gothic tradition, although it moves that genre to a different level. While being both a cautionary tale against over-reaching ambition and the excesses of scientific rationalism, it is also a stirring psychoanalytical study of the darker side of man. --About.com

The cruise of the "Janet Nichol" among the South Sea Islands; a diary by Fanny Van de Grift Stevenson( Book )

20 editions published between 1914 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 1890 the steamer Janet Nicoll set off from Sydney for a three-month trading voyage through the central and western Pacific. Aboard were seven white men, a crew of forty islanders, and one woman: a short-haired, barefoot, cigarette-smoking American, Fanny Van de Grift Stevenson, wife of the famous novelist Robert Louis Stevenson. The Cruise of the 'Janet Nichol' is her account of her journey with her husband and grown son through the Cook Islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Marshall Islands." "Fanny Stevenson's spirited personality led her into scenes and situations few Europeans, and fewer European women, had experienced. Her diary and its accompanying photographs offer unique glimpses of life in some of the last independent Pacific kingdoms and those just coming under colonial rule at the end of the nineteenth century. This book, with an introduction by Roslyn Jolly, is the story of an unconventional woman, her unusual marriage, and her adventurous journey through a rapidly changing Pacific world
