ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON, BY A.  H.  JAPP 

PREFACE 

A FEW words may here be allowed me to explain one or two points. 
First, about the facsimile of last page of Preface to FAMILIAR
STUDIES OF MEN AND BOOKS.  Stevenson was in Davos when the greater
portion of that work went through the press.  He felt so much the
disadvantage of being there in the circumstances (both himself and
his wife ill) that he begged me to read the proofs of the Preface
for him.  This illness has record in the letter from him (pp.  28-
29).  The printers, of course, had directions to send the copy and
proofs of the Preface to me.  Hence I am able now to give this
facsimile.
