SCOTT, Walter, Sir.

1810. SCOTT, Walter, Sir. THE LADY OF THE LAKE. A POEM. Edinburgh: John Ballantyne and others, 1810. 8vo. Contemporary full decorated and gilt calf, all edges gilt . (x), 433 pages. Fourth edition. Scott wrote The Lady in the Lake in 1810, and this is the fourth edition. It became such a popular work that it went through twelve editions that first year alone. He was drawing on the romance of the Arthurian legend but with an entirely different story set around Loch Katrine in the Trossachs of Scotland. Scott's material furnished subject matters for La Donna del Lago, an opera by Gioachino Rossini. It began a fashion for operas with Scottish settings and based on Scott's works of which Donizetti "Lucia di Lammermoor" is the most familiar. Bookplate from Colonial Williamsburg Foundation Library. Tips of spine and hinges worn, else very good.
