Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a tale of one man who inadvertently creates a monster, himself. On their weekly walk, an eminently sensible, trustworthy lawyer named Mr. Utterson listens as his friend Enfield tells a gruesome tale of assault. The tale describes a sinister figure named Mr. Hyde who tramples a young girl, disappears into a door on the street, and reemerges to pay off her relatives with a check signed by a respectable gentleman. Since both Utterson and Enfield disapprove of gossip, they agree to speak no further of the matter. It happens, however, that one of Utterson’­s clients and close friends, Dr. Jekyll, has written a will transferring all of his property to this same Mr. Hyde. Soon, Utterson begins having dreams in which a faceless figure stalks through a nightmarish version of London. As the tale grows into something more and more tangled, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde become more and more aggressive and less able . . .

Extrait :
"... En tout cas il eut le désir de prendre une vieille femme pour tenir son presbytère et préparer ses repas. On lui recommanda une vieille boiteuse – qui s’appelait Janet Mac Clour – et il lui fallut se décider. Beaucoup le mirent en garde contre cet avis, car Janet était plus que suspecte aux meilleures gens de Balweary. Longtemps auparavant, elle avait eu un bébé d’un militaire ; elle ne s’était pas approchée de la Sainte Table depuis au moins trente ans ; et des . . .

pubOne.­info present you this wonderfully illustrated edition. Robert Lewis Balfour Stevenson, or Robert Louis Stevenson, as the world knows him, was still a boy when he published this rare volume of “A Child's Garden of Verses, ” although by the calendar he was thirty-­five years old. You and I have sighed, no doubt, to be a boy again, but here was one who, while he outgrew his knickerbockers, never outgrew the quick sympathy, the brave heart, the fresh outlook, the confident faith and buoyant spirit of the little Scotch boy who roamed the hills 'round Edinburgh. Better than any man of any time he was able to enter into the heart of a boy, to view things with a boy's eyes, and to write of them in simple verse, touched with the warmth and color of his rich imagination.
