This article closely examines Robert Louis Stevenson's reading of a specific work, William Forbes-Mitchell's 'Reminiscences of the Great Mutiny, 1857-9', and places this within the broader context of Stevenson's reading practices. It considers how this celebrated Victorian reader read (and re-enacted) the past, and engages with new methodology in demonstrating the possibilities and challenges of reconstructing the activity of reading.
