Synopsis

The Waverley Novels are a long series of novels by Sir Walter Scott, a Scottish writer and historian. For nearly a century, they were among the most popular and widely read novels in all of Europe. Scott did not publicly acknowledge authorship until 1827, causing the series to take its name from Waverley, the first novel of the series published in 1814. The later books bore the words "by the author of Waverley" on their title pages. The Tales of my Landlord sub-series was not advertised as "by the author of Waverley" and as a result not always included as part of the Waverley Novels series.
