Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish writer of novels, poems, essays, and travel books. For most of his life, Stevenson suffered from serious bronchial trouble, but kept on travelling and writing.

His most famous novels are ”Treasure Island” (1883), ”The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” (1886), ”Kidnapped” (1886) and ”A Child’s Garden of Verses” (1885).
