Jane Austen's Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen( Book )

42 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility. - Publisher

The first historical novel in English, Waverly (1814) is set during the Jacobite rising in Scotland in 1745. Edward Waverly, 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 Waverly 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. This novel springs from Scott's childhood recollections and his desire to preserve in writing the features of life in the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland. Waverley was first published anonymously in 1814 and was Scott's first novel. --Publisher description
The heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott( Book )

17 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This novel, regarded as one of Scott's finest, opens with the Edinburgh riots of 1736. The people have been infuriated by the actions of John Porteous, Captain of the Guard; when his life is saved by the distant monarch they ignore the Queen and resolve to take their own revenge." "Closely connected with these events is the story of the novel's heroine, Jeanie Deans, a peasant girl of remarkable religious faith. Like the people of Edinburgh she refuses to accept a legal decision, in this case against her sister Effie, condemned under a harsh law of child-murder. The novel follows Jeanie's prodigious determination to save her sister's life. At the centre of both narratives is Edinburgh's forbidding prison, the Tolbooth, known by all as the Heart of Midlothian."--Jacket

Romanticism's debatable lands by C Lamont( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phrase 'debatable lands' came into use in the sixteenth century with reference to disputed parts of the Anglo-Scottish border. It was Walter Scott, writing in the Romantic period, who brought it to a wider public, and it gradually came to be applied both to disputed territories in other parts of the world and also, by metaphorical extension, to disputes which were not so much geographical but intellectual, political or artistic. The concept of 'debatable lands', because of its denial of a boundary, creates a space outside any acknowledged territory where the unexpected can happen. This new collection of essays uses the phrase as a starting point to explore questions of nation and border, empire and colonization in the Romantic period, exploring a range of genres including biography, scientific and travel writing and antiquarianism
