In the summer of 1881 Stevenson's first novel was inspired when he was helping his wife's son learn how to draw. He explained, "...I made the map of an Island; it was elaborately and (I thought) beautifully coloured. The shape of it took my fancy beyond expression...I ticketed my performance Treasure Island."
