The heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott( Book )

693 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 4,837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Heart of Mid-Lothian is precisely focused on the trials for murder of John Porteous and of Effie Deans in 1736 and 1737. Yet it is a chronicle - Scott's only chronicle - which spans the eighty years of the life of David Deans, whose death takes place in 1751. It is the most complex of all Scott's narratives. It is also the most challenging in that it raises in an acute fashion the problem of a judicial system that does not produce justice. Scott places this fundamental issue in its immediate political context, in history as represented by the life of Deans, and alongside the justice of Providence as perceived by his daughter Jeanie, the greatest of Scott's heroines." "This edition of The Heart of Mid-Lothian provides a new text established in accordance with the tried policies and practices of the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels, and in its annotation treats comprehensively the novel's historical, legal, religious and cultural sources."--Jacket
The Lady of the lake by Walter Scott( Book )

787 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 4,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the poetic tour de force that turned Walter Scott into an international literary legend. The Lady of the Lake was his best selling poem, taking the literary world by storm, it sold over 25,000 copies in the first 8 months. Queen Victoria was a fan having 38 copies of the poem in her library at Balmoral! The poem had huge influence on the area, Ellen's Isle on Loch Katrine is named after fair Ellen in the poem, and around the world. It was even translated for the Mohican Indians in North America. The poem fell out of fashion in the 20th century although even as late as the 1950s tourist guides in the Trossachs were being paid an extra penny a time if they could recite verses of the poem. Now 200 years on Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in partnership with the Association of Scottish Literary Studies has republished the poem making it available again for the first time in decades

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 lay of the last minstrel : a poem. by Walter Scott( Book )

218 editions published between 1805 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Sir Walter Scott's most celebrated and accessible works, The Lay of the Last Minstrel was a huge publishing phenomenon when it first appeared in 1802, with six editions appearing in three years years and sales of 27,000 in a decade. Its impact on Border tourism was vast, as countless people, moved by Scott's evocative description of the moonlit Melrose Abbey, flocked to the area. Painters too were inspired by the scene, and such was its fame that even prime minister William Pit recited sections from it in front of dinner guests. Told by an ageing minstrel to Ann, Duchess of Buccleu

Redgauntlet by Walter Scott( Book )

300 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,480 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."--Jacket
The black dwarf by Walter Scott( Book )

181 editions published between 1823 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 833 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
