About This Item

Moskva, Tip. Avgusta Semena, 1827.
The one and only edition of the poem The Lord of the Isles by Walter Scott (1771-1832) in Russian. Translated as prose. The original poem was published in 1815. This poem is about the national hero of Scotland Robert the Bruce. He headed the First War of Scottish Independence against England and was a King of Scots from 1306 till 1329. In the poem he was into an exile and sought an asylum with Ronald, Lord of the Isles. Robert appeared on the day of the wedding feast and the party broke up. The guests divided into two camps : one ready to raise him to the Scottish crown and others ready to kill him. This edition was printed in one of the best printing house in Moscow. Owner of printing house was a Frenchman, publisher and typographer Avgust Semen.
Very rare.
Levidova, #249.
