Note
  • T.p. in red and black with publisher's device
  • Colophon: The earliest record of any portion of this poem is found in a letter, now in the Beinecke Collection at Yale University, written from San Francisco in February, 1880, by Robert Louis Stevenson to his friend Sidney Colvin in which Stevenson includes the last two lines of the poem as part of a suggested epitaph. This first separate printing of Requiem in three stanzas is from the original manuscript, written in 1884 by Stevenson during his severe illness at Hyʹeres, France, now in the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery. When Stevenson first published the poem in Underwoods (Chatto and Windus, 1887), the second verse was ommitted. "Printed at the Plantin Press, Los Angeles for the Huntington Library Zamoranons and presented to the joint meeting of the Roxburghe & Zamorano Clubs September 1958."
