About the Author

Sir Walter Scott, was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. Many of his works remain classics and include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor.

Peter Garside is Honorary Professorial Fellow at the University of Edinburgh. He is Executive/General Editor of the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels (EEWN), and was Advisory/Associate General Editor the Stirling/South Carolina Edition of the Collected Works of James Hogg 1991-2010.


The new edition of the Waverley Novels is important not just for those interested in Scott and Scottish literature, but also for those in the fields of bibliography, textual criticism and the History of the Book... If any scholar was well placed to establish an 'ideal text' of Waverley, it is Peter Garside... The meticulous care with which the numerous emendations to the texts have been considered makes these volumes a landmark series for modern editing, as well as serving the practical purpose of restoring Scott's texts to their original form.
