The Master of Ballantræ
The Master of Ballantræ, by Robert Louis Stevenson, with an introduction by G.B. Stern and with color lithographs by Lynd Ward. The Heritage Press, New York (1965). 303 pages. $3.99.
Note: I visited two thrift stores this morning, hoping to find a suitable bookshelf for the massive encyclopedia set I brought home yesterday. I didn’t even find an unsuitable one; there were simply no shelves to be had. But I did find The Master of Ballantræ. That made me feel a lot better.
