This book has been used as a Robert Louis Stevenson "scrapbook" by New Zealand librarian and bibliographer W. H. Trimble (1860-1927). Newspaper clippings, reviews, and clippings from bookseller's catalogues relating to Robert Louis Stevenson have been pasted to blank areas throughout the book, most profusely to the endpapers. A handwritten index to the names referred to in the clippings by Trimble is pasted to the front endpaper. Of particular interest in this copy is a clipping of Stevenson's signature pasted to the title page, "R. L. Stevenson", with the comment in Trimble's handwriting: "The autograph at the top corner of this page is a genuine Stevenson signature cut out of a volume from Stevenson's library at Vailima." After Trimble, this book comes from the collection of New Zealand journalist, author and book collector Pat Lawlor. Pencil note by Lawlor on front endpaper: "Note: The fact that W. H. Trimble has certified to the authenticity of Stevenson's signature on the title page is significant guarantee of its genuineness / Pat Lawlor". Lawlor also wrote an interesting desciption of the clipped signature found in this book in "Books and Bookmen" (Wellington: Whitcombe & Tombs, 1954, page 33): "There is a sinister unsigned inscription in my copy of The Pavilion on the Links which I bought at a Wellington book auction: 'The autograph at the top corner of this page is a genuine Stevenson signature cut out of a volume from Stevenson's library at Vailima.' True enough there is the neat R.L.S. autograph pasted on the title page, making me think of a grave snatcher who has cut the hand from a corpse so that he might have the ring on the finger." viii, 96 pages + colour frontispiece + b&w plates. Illustrated cloth boards. Page dimensions: 206 x 136mm. Illustrated by Gordon Browne. ; 8vo; Signed by Author
