It was finished in the course of his second visit to Davos in the winter of 1881-1882. Treasure Island, which appeared when the author was thirty-one, was his first long romance, and it brought to him his first taste of popular success, when the story was published in book form. It was in October 1881, that this story began to appear as a serial in an English magazine called Young Folks. The title then was The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island, but when published in book form in May 1883, the name was simply Treasure Island, a name which has taken its place among the titles of far older classics. This edition contains the superb illustrations of Louis Rhead, which he published in 1915. The Cornish translation is by Nicholas Williams, who also translated Louis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland into Cornish and into Irish.
