It is biographical book. First, about the facsimile of last page of Preface to Familiar Studies of Men and Books. Stevenson was in Davos when the greater portion of that work went through the press. He felt so much the disadvantage of being there in the circumstances (both himself and his wife ill) that he begged me to read the proofs of the Preface for him. This illness has record in the letter from him. The printers, of course, had directions to send the copy and proofs of the Preface to me. Hence I am able now to give this facsimile.
