Description

Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet, FRSE (1771–1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet. Scott was the first English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and poetry are still read, and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature.
Engraved by S. Freeman after the portrait by J. Watson Gordon for ‘Lives of Illustrious and Distinguished’ by Robert Chambers, 1834. Published by Blackie & Son, Glasgow.
