About This Item

Richard Edward King, 1900c, London, 370 pages: Condition Good+

Binding: Good to fair, a little loose feeling in parts but text block all connected.

Text: Inscription on inside cover and stamp from previous owner, text appears to be clear from annotation and marks.

Overall: A good volume, the binding could be a little tighter but this is a minor point. Some nice Victorian pattern prints at the end/ beginning of chapters. Glossary in the back pages and publisher advert on last page.

Synopsis

Sir Walter Scott was born in Edinburgh in 1771. Educated for the law, he obtained the office of sheriff-depute of Selkirkshire in 1799 and in 1806 the office of clerk of session, a post whose duties he fulfilled for some twenty-five years. His lifelong interest in Scottish antiquity and the ballads which recorded Scottish history led him to try his hand at narrative poems of adventure and action. The Lay of the Last Minstrel (1805), Marmion (1808), and The Lady of the Lake (1810) made his reputation as one of the leading poets of his time. A novel, Waverley , which he had begun in 1805, was published anonymously in 1814. Subsequent novels appeared with the note “by the author of Waverley”; hence his novels often are called collectively “the Waverley novels.” Some of the most famous of these are Old Mortality (1816), Rob Roy (1817), Ivanhoe (1819), Kenilworth (1821), and Quentin Durward (1823). In recognition of his literary work Scott was made a baronet in 1819. During his last years he held various official positions and published biographies, editions of Swift and Dryden, tales, lyric poetry, and various studies of history and antiquity. He died in 1832.

About Squeeze Gut Alley Rare Books

Hi welcome to Squeeze Gut Alley Rare Books, my name is Paul Crame. I find, clean-up and conserve; interesting, unique and sometimes even rare books! So that they can continue to give new pleasure for many more years to come. I work in an academic library full-time and run Squeeze Gut on the side as part collector, part hobbyist, part dealer... Yes, I am basically a full-time suffering obsessive bibliophile. FAQ: Squeeze Gut Alley? That's a strange name for a bookshop? Ans: I was inspired by one of the many fisherman alleys pictured to the right >> in my home town of Whitstable, Kent, UK. Squeeze Gut Alley (a particularly narrow passage) was once (apparently) used as an escape route from the local policeman. Until one day... the rather rotund village policeman decided to chase a very naughty boy down the alley, and got his very large Capital Gut stuck in the narrow passageway! The name stuck and so did his Gut.
