Read Books Ltd, 8 jun 2015 - 956 páginas
This vintage book contains Sir Walter Scott's historical novel, "Waverley" (first published in 1814). It tells the story of Edward Waverley, a young English soldier who is sent to Scotland during the Jacobite uprising of 1714. He leaves his upper-class home in the north of England and travels first through the Scottish lowlands, and then into heart of the rebellion in the highlands. It is considered the first historical novel in western literature, and became so popular that his later works were often sold as being written by 'the author of Waverley'. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in eighteenth century Scottish history, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Scott's seminal work. Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832), was a Scottish historical novelist, poet, and playwright - considered to be the first truly international English-language author. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
