The antiquary by Walter Scott( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 263 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
The heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 260 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 antiquary by Walter Scott( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'It was early in a fine, summer's day, near the end of the eighteenth century, when a young man, of genteel appearance, having occasion to go towards the north-east of Scotland, provided himself with a ticket in one of those public carriages which travel between Edinburgh and the Queensferry...'" "So begins Scott's personal favourite among his own novels, in characteristically wry and urbane style, as a mysterious young man calling himself Lovel travels idly but fatefully toward the Scottish seaside town of Fairport. Here he is befriended by the antiquary Jonathan Oldbuck, who has taken refuge from his own personal disappointments in the obsessive study of miscellaneous history. Their slow unravelling of Lovel's true identity will unearth and redeem the secrets and lies which have devastated the guilt-haunted Earl of Glenallan, and will reinstate the tottering fortunes of Sir Arthur Wardour and his daughter Isabella." "First published in 1816 in the aftermath of Waterloo, The Antiquary deals with the problem of how to understand the past so as to enable the future. Set in the tense times of the wars with revolutionary France, it displays Scott's matchless skill at painting the social panorama and in creating vivid characters, from the earthy beggar Edie Ochiltree to the loquacious and shrewdly humorous Antiquary himself." "The text is based on Scott's own final, authorized version, the 'Magnum Opus' edition of 1829."--BOOK JACKET
