The first historical novel in English, Waverly (1814) is set during the Jacobite rising in Scotland in 1745. Edward Waverly, a young English soldier in the Hanoverian army, is sent to Scotland. He visits a Jacobite laird in the lowlands of Perthshire and then makes his way into the Highlands, where he meets a chieftain and his clansmen. Before long Waverly is caught up in the Jacobite cause, offering his allegiance to Prince Charles Edward Stuart, and to the dauntless Flora Mac-Ivor. The hero's journey of self-discovery takes place in a country torn by civil war, as the political outlook of the eighteenth century meets the older social organization of the Highlands in violent confrontation. This novel springs from Scott's childhood recollections and his desire to preserve in writing the features of life in the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland. Waverley was first published anonymously in 1814 and was Scott's first novel. --Publisher description

The Waverley novels by Walter Scott ( Book )

The Waverley Novels are a long series of books by Sir Walter Scott. For nearly a century they were among the most popular and widely-read novels in all of Europe. Because he did not publicly acknowledge authorship until 1827, they take their name from Waverley (1814), which was the first. The later books bore the words "by the author of Waverley" on their title pages.-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The black dwarf by Walter Scott ( )
139 editions published between 1822 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By 1816 Scott had written three successful novels and the public was clamoring for more. In a change of direction Scott set out to write four "tales" illustrating the manners and customs of Scotland, to be issued together as Tales of My Landlord. The first of these, The Black Dwarf is a novella set in Liddesdale in the Scottish Borders. It is 1708; in the aftermath of the Union of Scotland and England a group of Jacobites plots the restoration of the Stuart monarchy and Scottish independence. Against this turbulent backdrop of nationalist passions and cross-border feuding, a gothic tale of love and danger unfolds. At its center is the grotesque figure of the mysterious and solitary Black Dwarf who symbolically frees the heroine Isabella Vere from a violent, patriarchal past, and helps her choose a peace-loving Scottish laird as her husband

Redgauntlet by Walter Scott ( )
33 editions published between 1912 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the summer of 1765 Darsie Latimer sets out to discover the secret of his parentage in a journey to the wilds of Dumfriesshir. But very soon he discovers that he must confront not geographical but ideological wilds, for he is kidnapped by Edward Hugh Redgauntlet and involved in a last, fictional attempt to restore the Stuarts to the British throne. His Edinburgh friend, the advocate Alan Fairford, seeks to find him, and finds modes of life which pay scant heed to the rule of law, and many who maintain a covert allegiance to the exiled monarchy. The violent past is repeatedly recalled: the oral diablerie of the inset 'Wandering Willie's Tale', probably the greatest short story ever written in Scots, provides a grotesque vision of the structures of an older Scotland. It is this older Scotland which Redgauntlet wished to restore, but Darsie, who set out as a romantic, discovers through his experience a commitment to the Hanoverian peace." "The text is based on the first edition of 1824, emended by readings from Scott's manuscript and proof corrections which were lost in the original process of preparing the text for publication."--BOOK JACKET
