About This Item

1822 1st eds SCOTTISH Sir Walter Scott Saint Ronan's Well Peveril of Peak 7v SET

Sir Walter Scott was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. Many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. These volumes are the true first Scottish edition of Scott's famous books 'St. Ronan's Well' and 'Peveril of the Peak.'

Scott's novel, Peveril of the Peak tracks the events of the Popish Plot of 1678, in which Jesuits were accused of planning the assassination of King Charles II in order to make his Roman Catholic brother, the Duke of York, King. Set during the time of the pretended Popish Plot (1678).

"The author draws elaborate portraits of Charles II and Buckingham, and gives glimpses of such historical characters as Titus Oates, Colonel Blood (the impudent revolutionary who tried to steal the crown jewels from the Tower), and Sir Geoffrey Hudson (Henritta Maria's dwarf)." (Oxford Companion to English Literature)

St. Ronan's Well is a novel of Social Criticism and it is one of Scott's most bitter and scathingly satirical novels. In fact, a scene in which a forced marriage is consummated was so unpleasant that the publishers forced him to alter his plot.

These seven volumes are the first Scottish editions of both works printed in Edinburgh.
