Bibliotheca britannica ; or, A general index to British and foreign literature by Robert Watt( Book )

Saint Ronan's well by Walter Scott( Book )

5 editions published in 1824 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sir Walter Scott, the renowned author of Rob Roy, Kenilworth, and Ivanhoe, brings readers this enlightening picture of Scottish country life, now in a handsome edition with a critical essay and detailed notes and glossary. Now restored to its original elegance and liveliness, with sexually explicit material that has long been suppressed, Saint Ronan's Well turns its back on the wars raging on the world stage at the beginning of the nineteenth century, presenting instead a dark comedy that explores a society at war with itself."--BOOK JACKET. "The story is set in a sleepy Tweedside village boasting little more than a run-down inn. When a nearby mineral spring, Saint Ronan's Well, becomes a popular vacation spot, the character of the little village changes, as it becomes infiltrated by a gaggle of wealthy tourists and by the influences of modernity."--BOOK JACKET. "Saint Ronan's Well features a rich cast of players, from the sentimental proprietor of the inn, to the wealthy young gadfly living far beyond his means and constantly in search of easy money, to the town gossip, always with an ear to the ground. The characters wrestle their way noisily to a climactic finish: one dead in a duel, one dying of shame, one fleeing to a monastery, and one leaving for Spain. In the end, the excitement dies down and the tourists depart; only the innkeeper, Meg Dods, remains."--BOOK JACKET. "Displaying the eclectic pageant of Scottish life with artful dialogue and an intricate web of plots and sub-plots, Saint Ronan's Well is a classic in the British literary tradition."--BOOK JACKET

Peveril of the Peak by Walter Scott( Book )

5 editions published in 1822 in English and held by 162 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
