About this book
Features an introduction that discusses Stevenson, the book's composition and publication history, the novel's status and reputation as both an adults and children's classic, critical reception, and its place in literature, plus unrivalled explanatory notes and a glossary of nautical terms along with up-to-date bibliography and chronology.
Stevenson's classic tale of buccaneers, a treasure map, and a hunt for buried gold introduced the character of Long John Silver and brought moral ambiguity into children's books. This new edition celebrates the ultimate book of pirates and examines its innovations and unrivalled place in literary history.
