This website is a cataloged repository for digitized illustrations of the works of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), based upon the research and personal collections of Richard J. Hill. This website is conceived as a site of scholarly interest and research in the fields of Stevenson studies and the history of the book, specifically the Victorian illustrated novel. It will contain an evolving catalogue of illustrations and images both by Stevenson himself and by illustrators to his works, which were produced during or just after his lifetime, and is meant to compliment the production of exciting new scholarship in these areas.
