Walter Scott

  • The only available critical edition, this reissue includes a fine introduction by Kathryn Sutherland, which examines the historical context, the novel's structure and style, and the story itself.
  • Reproduces the Magnum edition text, the last to be corrected by Scott, and includes Scott's own notes.
  • Up-to-date bibliography.
  • Timeline of Scottish history in the period relating to the novel, as well as a chronology of the author.
