The Wrecker by Robert Louis Stevenson and LLoyd Osbourne, shipped to America for the Stevenson Museum in Vailima, Samoa. The book was inscribed and presented by Stevenson’s stepson and co-author Lloyd Osbourne to James Chalmers in 1897. Chalmers was later killed and martyred in New Guinea. Stevenson – in his own words – hero worshipped Chalmers, reflecting on how different his life would have been had they met when Stevenson was a boy.
