DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE – TYPE II – VINTAGE HORROR SERIES – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
First published in 1886 by Robert Louis Stevenson, “Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” is a gothic novella. It is about a London legal practitioner named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde. The novella’s impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the phrase “Jekyll and Hyde” entering the vernacular to refer to people with an unpredictably dual nature: usually very good, but sometimes shockingly evil.
