Clean and bright boards with sharp corners and a touch of rubbing to the spine as seen in photos, otherwise in remarkably good condition. Light foxing to endpapers and first few and last pages, age toning to tissue guard and browning to pages' edges, sometimes affecting the very edge of pages, but overall clean and fresh. Small repaired edge tear to fore edge of first page, not affecting text. 176pp. 'The Silverado Squatters (1883) is Robert Louis Stevenson's travel memoir of his two-month honeymoon trip with Fanny Vandegrift (and her son Lloyd Osbourne) to Napa Valley, California, in 1880'.
