The heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott ( Book )
604 editions published between 1800 and 2008 in 11 languages and held by 2,657 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."--BOOK JACKET.
Waverley by Walter Scott ( Book )
741 editions published between 1800 and 2010 in 15 languages and held by 2,506 libraries worldwide
The first 'historical novel' in English, Waverley (1814) is set at the time of the Jacobite rising of 1745. Edward Waverley, 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 Waverley 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. --Publisher.

Redgauntlet by Walter Scott ( Book )
526 editions published between 1745 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 2,064 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."--BOOK JACKET.

The monastery by Walter Scott ( Book )
398 editions published between 1800 and 2008 in 11 languages and held by 1,251 libraries worldwide
"Set on the eve of the Protestant Reformation in Scotland, The Monastery is full of supernatural events, theological conflict, and humour. Located in the lawless Scottish Borders, the novel depicts the monastery of Kennaquhair (a thinly disguised Melrose Abbey, whose ruins are still to be seen near Scott's own home at Abbotsford) on the verge of dissolution, and the fortunes of two brothers as they respond to a new social and religious order. Highlights of the narrative include a moving encounter between two representatives of opposing sides in the Reformation controversy who had been students together in less troubled times, and the final formal procession of the Kennaquhair monks as the reformed forces arrive. A talking-point when the work was first published, the mysterious spectral White Lady, guardian of the magical Black Book, still intrigues readers. A strong comic element is provided by Sir Piercie Shafton with his absurd linguistic mannerisms fashionable at the English court. The narrative is preceded by one of Scott's most charming and playful introductory exchanges between the fictional local antiquary Cuthbert Clutterbuck and the Author of Waverley."--BOOK JACKET.
