    "Them that dies will be the lucky ones!"

    Robert Louis Stevenson. Treasure Island. London: Cassell & Company, 1883.

    First edition, early issue. Octavo. 292 pages with 8 pages of advertisements dated 5R-1083.

    Publisher's full olive cloth with blind-ruled boards and spine ends, and gilt spine titles. All edges untrimmed. Black endpapers. October advertisements, which could have been used in first issue bindings. Frontispiece map in three colors. Toning to page edges. Hinges invisibly strengthened. Minor repair to spine ends. Does contain several first issue points, including: "dead man's chest" is not capitalized on page 2 or 7, the "a" is not present in line 6 on page 63, the period is lacking following "opportunity" on line 20 of page 178, and "worse" for "worst" on line 3 of page 197. A clean, very good copy of Stevenson's classic tale of piracy and adventure.
