PREFACE

The editor feels that Treasure Island belongs in the category of books which it would be an impertinence to annotate or provide with an elaborate critical apparatus. He has therefore confined himself largely to the career and personality of the author. The subject-matter of the story contains nothing which requires more explanation than an unabridged dictionary can supply. The art with which the simple materials of the plot are managed, the observant student should realize for himself as he reads.
