The Antiquary
by

Publisher: Estes and Lauriat
ISBN/ASIN: B002CMLOCW

Description:
The Antiquary, Scott's personal favorite among his novels, is characteristically wry and urbane. It deals with the problem of how to understand the past so as to enable the future. Set in the tense times of the wars with revolutionary France, it displays Scott's matchless skill at painting the social panorama and in creating vivid characters.
