The dynamiter by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

109 editions published between 1885 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three bored men, down to their last few pennies, vow to go out into London's streets and pursue whichever adventure befalls them. What ensues is a series of remarkable stories in which the protagonists encounter several characters who may or may not be conspirators in a bombing plot on behalf of Irish independence. The characters weave intriguing and troubling tales of their histories. The chapters stand alone as adventures, but the whole is tied together nicely in the end. There is a strong satirical bent throughout the book, but some of the stories carry hidden political punches as well. The relationship of the various characters is mysterious, yet Stevenson does little to perpetuate the mystery. He is more concerned with the storytelling, and that storytelling is terrific. More than that, I dare not write, as details would quickly expose the interconnected aspects of the stories. Suffice to say that in a book about British wanderers, Stevenson manages to tell tales of murderous Mormons, crazed Voodoo practitioners, and wayward Bohemian princes, among others

Travels with a donkey by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

4 editions published between 1905 and 1928 in English and English, Old and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1878, Robert Louis Stevenson was suffering from poor health, struggling to survive on the income derived from his writings, and tormented by his infatuation with Fanny Osbourne, a married American woman. His response was to embark on a journey through the Cevennes with a donkey, Modestine, and a notebook, which he later transformed into Travels with a Donkey. Just a few months after publication, Stevenson was off again -- this time crossing the Atlantic and the breadth of America in the hope of being re-united with Fanny, an experience he recorded in The Amateur Emigrant. Both pieces are classics of travel writings, which reveal as much about Stevenson's character as the landscape he travels through. - Amazon
The merry men and other tales and fables ; Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

4 editions published between 1905 and 1921 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The first story is] a short novella written in the Gothic tradition, although it moves that genre to a different level. While being both a cautionary tale against over-reaching ambition and the excesses of scientific rationalism, it is also a stirring psychoanalytical study of the darker side of man. --About.com
