[Sir Walter Scott Bart.]
Sir T Lawrence P R A. J H Robinson.
[n.d. 1830.]
Line Engraving. 536 x 432mm. Unfinished proof, rich contrast in impression.
Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet (14 August 177121 September 1832) was a prolific Scottish historical novelist and poet popular throughout Europe during his time. In some ways Scott was the first author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers all over Great Britain, Ireland, Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and (to a lesser extent) his poetry are still read, but he is far less popular nowadays than he was at the height of his fame. Nevertheless many of his works remain classics of English literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley and The Heart of Midlothian.
