The Lady of the Lake marked the pinnacle of Walter Scott's popularity as a poet, with record-breaking sales and ecstatic reviews which helped spread his fame far beyond Britain. It also inspired thousands to flock to Loch Katrine in the Trossachs to see for themselves the isle where the banished James of Douglas and his daughter Ellen take refuge, and where the mysterious knight, James Fitz James, arrives and sets in motion a chain of events which have far-reaching consequences for them all. A fictional work set during the reign of James V and featuring an astonishing range of themes, from political conflict, feud and mystery to love, loss and reconciliation, The Lady of the Lake is a key work of the romantic movement which swept Europe by storm in the early nineteenth century.

Notes: No dust jacket. Some shelf wear and scuff, this edition remains perky. The corners are a bit bumped but not too worn down and there is some rub to the covers the green cloth over boards has a black inlay illustration. A former owner has written his name on the inside cover page in fountain pen. The pages are certainly clean and presentable, though there are pages here and there that have a bit more age spots than others the page edge looks a little scuff. The back cover has a slight forward lean. Enjoy this antique as an economical price.
