Robert Louis Stevenson's compelling novel, a sequel to his popular Kidnapped, was published in 1893 and by Scribners with N. C. Wyeth's vibrant pictures in 1924. Written in Samoa six years after Kidnapped, David Balfour (also known as Catriona) is set in Stevenson's beloved Scottish Highlands as Balfour strives to exonerate the national hero James Stewart and finds romance with Catriona Drummond.
Reissued in the centennial year of Stevenson's death, David Balfour is the fourteenth Scribner Illustrated Classic to be made available to present-day readers. The original canvases have been newly photographed and reproduced with exceptional fidelity for this edition, and the text has been reset in the original typeface.
