The first (seven-volume) edition of the Memoirs of the Life of Sir Walter Scott, written by his son-in-law J.D. Lockhart and published in 1837, was flawed. Before a revised edition appeared in 1839, the Ballantyne family issued a pamphlet refuting the accuracy of the circumstances surrounding the failure of their joint business. This prompted an immediate answer from Lockhart, which in turn was answered by the Ballantynes - with fascinating detailed Company Accounts to support their position. All three pamphlets are brought together in this volume.
