STEVENSON, R. L. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, With Other Fables Longmans, Green & Co., London, 1896.

8vo. Original maroon cloth, titled in silver to upper cover, with publisher's crest to top left corner; pp. (viii), 247, 24 (ads); a little light foxing, silver lettering rubbed to letters F and A in "Fables", some toning to spine, nonetheless a very good copy of a book often found in poor shape.
An early edition of the classic gothic novella, 10 years after the first printing. Although the book was initially published as a Penny Dreadful, it was a smash success and became one of Stevenson's best-selling works. This edition contains a number of other fables, including The Devil and the Innkeeper and The House of Eld.
