Wainwright, Alexander D. [or: Princeton University. Library. Dept. of Rare Books and Special Collections] (1971). Robert Louis Stevenson : a catalogue of the Henry E. Gerstley Stevenson Collection, the Stevenson section of the Morris L. Parrish Collection of Victorian Novelists, and items from other collections in the Dept. of Rare Books and Special Collections of the Princeton University Library. Princeton, N.J.: Princeton

The Catalogue of the Stevenson collection in the Parrish collection of Victorian Novelists is now available on-line in a pdf format. There are two files that can be accessed: Items acquired since 1971 (a small file that can be easily consulted) and the main 1971 catalogue by Alexander Wainwright, which is the one that gives the problems.
