“It has been my good fortune to have had placed in my hands a manuscript volume in R.L.S.’s handwriting. In this scrap book there are many verses afterwards published in 'Underwoods' and some variants in the published poems; there are some fragments of prose and these hitherto unpublished verses, which it will scarcely be denied are admirable examples of Stevenson’s poetical gifts redolent of his love of nature and alive with his gift of song” (Foreword).
