The Biographical Edition of The Works of Robert Louis Stevenson was published by Charles Scribner and Sons, New York, between 1905 and 1911. The first lot appeared as a "25 volume complete set". In 1907, two volumes of Letters were added and the set upgraded to a "27 volume complete set". This particular set offered by Barrow Bookstore contains the complete 27 volumes. Volumes 1-25 are described by Scribner as part of "The Complete 25 volume" set; and Letters I and II are described as part of "the Complete 27 volume set". Our best understanding is that this set was bound in 1907 with uniform bindings and title pages. Volume 6, The Wrong Box, is the exception with a title page of 1906.
