'This classic tale ...addresses the duality in man's nature and is here illustrated with twelve atmospheric woodcuts by Barry Moser that underscore the darkness of Stevenson's tale and continue Moser's legacy of bringing new life to the classics' - "Bloomsbury Review". 'Pull[s] out all the stops' - "New Yorker". 'Moser's small, stirring wood engravings will help draw horror fans to the classic novel that has popularized the concept of the double...If you haven't reread it recently, you may be astonished by its suspensefulness and its disquieting power' - "Booklist". 'The dozen wood engravings by Moser will knock you out...You must own it!' - "Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction". "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is a landmark in psychological fiction. The respectable doctor and his horrifying double are known even to those who have never read Robert Louis Stevenson's short novel. This special edition, based on the original one published in 1886, features a dozen wood engravings by Barry Moser, whose work was described as 'never less than dazzling' by John Ashbery in "Newsweek". In her foreword novelist Joyce Carol Oates delineates the quality of horror that emerges from Stevenson's Victorian parable.
