The heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott( Book )

869 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 5,569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeanie Deans, a dairymaid, decides she must walk to London to gain an audience with the Queen. Her sister is to be executed for infanticide and, while refusing to lie to help her case, Jeanie is desperate for a reprieve. Set in the 1730s in a Scotland uneasily united with England, The Heart of Mid-Lothian dramatizes different kinds of justice—that meted out by the Edinburgh mob in the lynching of Captain Porteous, and that encountered by a terrified young girl suspected of killing her baby. Based on an anonymous letter Scot received in 1817, this is the seventh and finest of Scott's "Waverley" novels. It was an international bestseller and inspired succeeding novelists from Balzac to George Eliot

The antiquary by Walter Scott( Book )

902 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 4,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third of Sir Walter Scott's acclaimed Waverley Novels, a series that included Rob Roy and Ivanhoe, The Antiquary is set in Scotland in the last years of the eighteenth century and centers around Jonathan Oldbuck, the antiquary, the closest to a self-portrait of any of Scott's characters."--BOOK JACKET. "The passionate lover, a familiar character to readers of Sir Walter Scott, is here represented by Lovell, who relentlessly pursues the woman he hopes to marry. The antiquary is a constant commentator on the characters and their actions, always at hand to provide his opinionated version of the story."--BOOK JACKET. "While the reader may be swept up in the exciting plot, The Antiquary is a book that is not to be hurried; it has come to be appreciated for its rich description of a bygone age. This fine new edition of the book, restoring the original version drawn directly from Scott's manuscript, is accompanied by a critical essay, as well as annotations and a comprehensive glossary by a prominent scholar in the field."--BOOK JACKET

A legend of the wars of Montrose by Walter Scott( )

190 editions published between 1819 and 2018 in English and German and held by 3,780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I think this fellow Dalgetty is one of those horse-leeches, whose appetite for blood being only sharpened by what he has sucked in foreign countries, he is now returned to batten upon that of his own." Such is one character's view of the Scottish mercenary of the seventeenth century. Yet there is in Dugald Dalgetty's professional ethic, his blundering Latin, his loving care of his horse, and his own self-absorption, more genuine humanity than in the political and religious principles of Royalists and Covenanters alike. And the picture which emerges is not of violence imported into Scotland from Germany but of a country destroyed by uncompromising religious hatred, political bigotry, tribal feud and personal enmity. A Legend of the Wars of Montrose centres on one episode in the most bloody of Scotland's civil wars, Montrose's campaign for King Charles I in 1644-45; it is a short and savage tale."--BOOK JACKET
Marmion : a tale of Flodden Field by Walter Scott( Book )

580 editions published between 1807 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 3,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poem tells how Lord Marmion, a favourite of Henry VIII of England, lusts for Clara de Clare, a rich woman. He and his mistress, Constance De Beverley, forge a letter implicating Clara's fiancé, Sir Ralph De Wilton, in treason. Constance, a dishonest nun, hopes that her aid will restore her to favour with Marmion. When De Wilton loses the duel he claims in order to defend his honour against Marmion, he is obliged to go into exile. Clara retires to a convent rather than risk Marmion's attentions. Constance's hopes of a reconciliation with Marmion are dashed when he abandons her; she ends up being walled up alive in the Lindisfarne convent for breaking her vows. She takes her revenge by giving the Abbess who is one of her three judges documents that prove De Wilton's innocence. De Wilton, having returned disguised as a pilgrim, follows Marmion to Edinburgh where he meets the Abbess, who gives him the exonerating documents. When Marmion's host, the Earl of Angus is shown the documents, he arms De Wilton and accepts him as a knight again. De Wilton's plans for revenge are overturned by the battle of Flodden Field. Marmion dies on the battlefield, while De Wilton displays heroism, regains his honour, retrieves his lands, and marries Clara. --Wikipedia.com

Redgauntlet by Walter Scott( Book )

611 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 3,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the mid-eighteenth century in the fictitious third Jacobite rebellion, Redgauntlet (1824) tells of Darsie Latimer, a student of law who becomes embroiled in a plot to put Prince Charles Edward (aka, Bonnie Prince Charlie) on the British throne. The events in Redgauntlet never actually took place, but they are probable, and form the culmination of Scott's series of Jacobite novels
The monastery by Walter Scott( Book )

669 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 3,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set on the eve of the Protestant Reformation in Scotland, The Monastery is full of supernatural events, theological conflict, and humour. Located in the lawless Scottish Borders, the novel depicts the monastery of Kennaquhair (a thinly disguised Melrose Abbey, whose ruins are still to be seen near Scott's own home at Abbotsford) on the verge of dissolution, and the fortunes of two brothers as they respond to a new social and religious order. Highlights of the narrative include a moving encounter between two representatives of opposing sides in the Reformation controversy who had been students together in less troubled times, and the final formal procession of the Kennaquhair monks as the reformed forces arrive. A talking-point when the work was first published, the mysterious spectral White Lady, guardian of the magical Black Book, still intrigues readers. A strong comic element is provided by Sir Piercie Shafton with his absurd linguistic mannerisms fashionable at the English court. The narrative is preceded by one of Scott's most charming and playful introductory exchanges between the fictional local antiquary Cuthbert Clutterbuck and the Author of Waverley."--Jacket
The fortunes of Nigel by Walter Scott( Book )

639 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 2,938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Well versed in the political literature of the period, Walter Scott drew a detailed picture of London in the early 17th century while charting the effects of Scottish influx into the English capital; the ambitions and fears of the incomers and the suspicion they aroused. The complex web of political (and sexual) intrigue, and especially of all-important financial dealings and double-dealings, is traced with a master's hand." "No Scott novel has a more memorable cast of characters. King James heads them, with his childish irresponsibility and elusive character; a would-be Solomon and father of his country, theological disputant, prurient bisexual. But not far behind are jeweller George Heriot, clockmaker Davie Ramsay, courtier Sir Mungo Malagrowther, servant Richie Moniplies and many vivid minor characters."--Jacket
The black dwarf by Walter Scott( )

232 editions published between 1822 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,738 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
Peveril of the Peak by Walter Scott( Book )

606 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 2,732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Here is a plot without a drop of blood; and all the elements of a romance, without its conclusion', comments the King towards the end of Scott's longest, and arguably most intriguing, novel. Set against the backdrop of the Popish Plot to overturn Charles II, Peveril of the Peak explores the on-going tensions between Cavalier and Puritan loyalties during the fraught years of Restoration England. Ranging from Derbyshire to the Isle of Man and culminating in London, it is a novel which interweaves political intrigue, personal responsibilities and the ways in which the forces of history are played out in the struggles of individual human lives. But its true subject is perhaps the role of narration and the limits of storytelling itself. In this, the first scholarly edition of Peveril, Alison Lumsden recovers a lost novel."--Jacket
