The object of this edition is to provide the text of the Lay of the Last Minstrel as originally published, illustrated with annotations and supplementary documents. The Lay is what might be described as an "information-rich" poem and as such a good candidate for digital presentation. Scott illustrated the first edition with glosses and copious notes which are presented here as part of the primary document. To these are added supplemental annotations from four nineteenth-century editors
The Lady of the lake by Walter Scott( Book )

3 editions published in 1891 in English and held by 22 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
