Waverley was Scott’s first novel, but like its final chapter, `A Postscript which should have been a Preface’, it appears last in this series, so that the full weight of experience gained from editing Scott’s fiction can be brought to understanding his most influential novel, the one which gave

its name to the Waverley Novels. To this edition, P. D. Gardside brings new insights and new information, and he establishes a text which is significantly different from its predecessors. This is a great culmination to the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The new edition of the Waverley Novels is important not just for those interested in Scott and Scottish literature, but also for those in the fields of bibliography, textual criticism and the History of the Book... If any scholar was well placed to establish an 'ideal text' of Waverley, it is Peter Garside... The meticulous care with which the numerous emendations to the texts have been considered makes these volumes a landmark series for modern editing, as well as serving the practical purpose of restoring Scott's texts to their original form. - Fiona Stafford, Scottish Literary Review
