Happy birthday Robert Louis Stevenson

On November 13th, 1850, Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer Robert Louis Stevenson was born at 8 Howard Place, Edinburgh.

A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks among the 26 most translated authors in the world, thanks to classics like Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, Arthur Conan Doyle, Cesare Pavese, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton.
