"WHILE Edinburgh boasts the distinction of being the birthplace of Sir Walter Scott, and the greater part of his professional career was spent in the Capital, his "own romantic town," it goes without saying that nowhere was he more at home, and nowhere do we find so many associations with him, as in the Scottish Border. In the triangle which may be traced on the map from Berwick-on-Tweed to the Solway, thence northward to Tweedsmuir and Broughton in Peebles--shire, and again to the east back to the ancient seaport borough, we have embraced what are practically the chief boundary-lines of that historic region. No part of the kingdom is more redolent of poetic and romantic memories. It is the homeland of Romance, under the spell of the centuries, and, most of all, of the great Wizard with whose name it is ever indissolubly connected. Sir Walter is the possession and pride of the world." - From the Preface. First published in 1902.
