Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels

Series Editor(s): David Hewitt

At last – the complete, critically edited edition of the Waverley Novels as Scott originally wrote them: all 28 of the Waverley Novels are now available as Edinburgh Editions, together with the two volumes of Introductions and Notes from the Magnum Opus.

The first of Scott's Waverley Novels burst upon an astonished world in 1814. Its publication marked the emergence of the modern novel in the western world, influencing all the great nineteenth-century writers. This handsome edition of Sir Walter Scott's novels captures the original power and freshness of his best-loved novels.

Going back to the original manuscripts, a team of scholars has uncovered what Scott originally wrote and intended his public to read before errors, misreadings and expurgations crept in:

  • Clean, corrected texts
  • Textual histories
  • Explanatory notes
  • Verbal changes from the first-edition text
  • Full glossaries
