The Edinburgh Edition is a monument to scholarly industry … a must for Scott scholars.
- Alan Bold
The Edinburgh Edition presents a slimmer, more handsome and more readable Scott. There is no parade of scholarship; the notes are concise and anticipate exactly what the general reader will want to have explained.
This new edition provides just the right combination of readability and unobtrusive scholarly editing.
