Redgauntlet by Walter Scott( Book )
3 editions published between 1824 and 1834 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the summer of 1765 Darsie Latimer sets out to discover the secret of his parentage in a journey to the wilds of Dumfriesshir. But very soon he discovers that he must confront not geographical but ideological wilds, for he is kidnapped by Edward Hugh Redgauntlet and involved in a last, fictional attempt to restore the Stuarts to the British throne. His Edinburgh friend, the advocate Alan Fairford, seeks to find him, and finds modes of life which pay scant heed to the rule of law, and many who maintain a covert allegiance to the exiled monarchy. The violent past is repeatedly recalled: the oral diablerie of the inset 'Wandering Willie's Tale', probably the greatest short story ever written in Scots, provides a grotesque vision of the structures of an older Scotland. It is this older Scotland which Redgauntlet wished to restore, but Darsie, who set out as a romantic, discovers through his experience a commitment to the Hanoverian peace." "The text is based on the first edition of 1824, emended by readings from Scott's manuscript and proof corrections which were lost in the original process of preparing the text for publication."--Jacket

This engaging collection of stories, published in 1804, was intended not for polite society, but rather to inform and entertain everyday people. With her customary feel for character, lively dialogue, and straightforward style, Edgeworth pens tales that are as readable now as they were when first written. The selections include Murad the Unlucky," The Lottery," and The Limerick Gloves."
A cure for the heart-ach [sic]. : A comedy, in five acts. by Thomas Morton( )
1 edition published in 1825 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Peveril of the Peak by Walter Scott( Book )
3 editions published between 1823 and 1834 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"'Here is a plot without a drop of blood; and all the elements of a romance, without its conclusion', comments the King towards the end of Scott's longest, and arguably most intriguing, novel. Set against the backdrop of the Popish Plot to overturn Charles II, Peveril of the Peak explores the on-going tensions between Cavalier and Puritan loyalties during the fraught years of Restoration England. Ranging from Derbyshire to the Isle of Man and culminating in London, it is a novel which interweaves political intrigue, personal responsibilities and the ways in which the forces of history are played out in the struggles of individual human lives. But its true subject is perhaps the role of narration and the limits of storytelling itself. In this, the first scholarly edition of Peveril, Alison Lumsden recovers a lost novel."--BOOK JACKET
