Sir Walter Scott: A Bibliographical History, 1796-1832
This Bibliography of Sir Walter Scott describes not only the variants in his novels and verse, as published in English during his lifetime, but extends to his lesser known activities as advocate and sheriff, antiquarian, biographer, editor, historian, reviewer, casual commentator from his Abbotsford estate, and constant contributor to the work of his friends and associates.
Apart from what is essentially Scott, this bibliography further discloses his often anonymous reappearance in 164 anthologies and again, now indirectly, in countless printings deriving from his original work - in shabby chapbooks, grand suites of illustrations, operas, plays, and endless reams of sheet music. After 160 years, interest in Scott continues as strong as ever. With releases of major motion pictures based on his novels and new editions of his works being republished around the world, Sir Walter's ability to enthrall remains undiminished.
