Synopsis

First published in 1879, Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes is amongst the most vivid of Stevenson's writings The romantic and the louche rub shoulders in this eulogy of Stevenson's birthplace. His passion for Auld Reekie never clouded his wry wit, and his enthusiasm for the picturesque detail and the savoury historical anecdote will delight readers today as much as they scandalised contemporaries.

Perhaps best known as the author of Treasure Island (1883) and other children's literature, Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a prolific travel writer, novelist, playwright, and essayist. Born in Edinburgh, he was a keen traveller throughout his life. He wrote many accounts inspired by his trips including An Island Voyage (1878) based on his canoeing adventures in France and Belgium, and a year later, Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes. His tales of travelling on an emigrant ship and train to California, was posthumously published in The Amateur Emigrant in 1895. In 1888, Stevenson left England for good and settled in Samoa until his death. It was on the island that he became known as 'Tusitala' or 'The Teller of Tales':
