1 JAMES, HENRY & ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON The Wrecker - By Robert Louis Stevenson & Lloyd Osborne

First Edition. Signed presentation copy inscribed by author, Henry James to the hospitalized sixteen year old son of his intimate friend, Margaret Brooke, Ranee of Sarawak. Inscribed: “To the brave Adeh from his affectionate friend, Henry James.” Skillfully rebacked with the original cloth laid down, a little foxing to endpapers, else very good. Margaret Brooke is discussed in Leon Edel's James biography and Brooke discusses James in her autobiography. Additionally, Robert Louis Stevenson and James were intimate friends, so it was most natural that James would present one of Stevenson's mystery and adventure novels to a boy. Adeh was Captain Bertram Willes Dayrell Brooke, Tuan Muda of Sarawak (b. 8 August 1876 at Kuching - 15 September 1965, Weybridge, Surrey) was a member of the family of White Rajahs who ruled Sarawak for a hundred years.
