The pirate by Walter Scott( Book )
5 editions published between 1822 and 1834 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
"No historical figures appear in The Pirate, and there are no historical events, but it is still an historical novel because it dramatises those 'corners of time' where an old era is coming to an end, and a new era is beginning. The novel is set in Orkney and Shetland in 1689, and for the northern isles the 'Glorious Revolution' actually means the beginning of the cultural dominance of Scotland and the advent of English power." "Scott draws heavily on the diary he kept on his tour round the lighthouses of Scotland in 1814. In both the diary and the novel he weighs the real need to improve the agricultural methods of this barely subsistence economy against the force of tradition and the human cost of rapid change." "The plot hinges on an illicit relationship, and is driven by dark men twisted by their criminality, an obsessed woman searching for her lost son, and the murderous rivalry of two young men - a family tale which illustrates the uses and abuses of traditional lore, as well as Scott's extraordinary grasp of the literature of the north."--Jacket

Thomas Sully painted some of the most dynamic personalities of the 19th century. Although he created more than two thousand portraits and subject paintings, his full production has never before been examined in depth. The child of actors, Sully's lifelong connection to the theatre informed his imagination. His portraits of 19th-century actors, celebrities, royalty and politicians established his reputation, and would mark all his works, particularly his 'fancy pictures', portraits evoking scenes from literature, fairy tales, Shakespeare, or of his own devising. 0Exhibition: Milwaukee Art Museum, USA (11.10.2013-05.01.2014) & San Antonio Museum of Art, USA (07.02.2014-04.05.2014). 0
