ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON (1850-1894), Scottish writer and poet, was born in Edinburgh to a prosperous family of engineers, but gave up the family profession first for law and then for literature. Among his prodigious output as a writer are: Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes (1879), Treasure Island (1883), The Black Arrow (1884), A Child's Garden of Verses (1885), and Kidnapped (1886).
