What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Leather Binding

The complete twelve-volume set of Waverley Novels, also known as the 'Abbotsford series,' comprising novels by popular author Sir Walter Scott. Beautifully bound in half morocco binding with marbled boards and endpapers and thoroughly illustrated. The series was named after Sir Walcot Scott's home, where he also died in 1832. 

Waverley was Scott's first novel written published anonymously in 1814 when he was already an established poet. It is regarded as one of the first Western historical novels. He published his later novels anonymously under "the author of Waverley." The series includes twenty-eight novels.

Sir Walter Scott was a Scottish historical novelist, poet, playwright, and historian; author of many English language and Scottish literary classics. He was the pioneer for historical novel writing and an exemplar of European romanticism.
