About the book:

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde was published as a "shilling shocker" in 1886, and became an instant classic--even read by Queen Victoria. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's repeated nightmare of living a double life, in which by day he worked as a respectable doctor and by night he roamed the back alleys of old-town Edinburgh, this suspenseful story about his dream existence so shocked his wife that she asked him to burn it. He did--only to rewrite it a few days later.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is still considered one of the best stories ever written about the complexity of the divided self--the good and the evil sides of humankind. With fascinating insights into Victorian society and early psychology, it is also a remarkable snapshot of its time. With striking illustrations and extended captions unique to the Whole Story, this striking edition provides background information modern readers could otherwise access only through a broad range of supplemental research. This distinctive approach places Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde--first published in 1886--within the context of its era, bringing it vividly to life.
