From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

From the Back Cover:

-- Based on the acclaimed Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels
-- The first authoritative edition drawn from Scott's original texts
-- With a special introduction for the Penguin Classics edition

Sir William Ashton, a devious lawyer, has deprived Lord Ravenswood of his title, his estate and subsequently of his life by means of legal and financial trickery. Edgar, Ravenswood's only son, has inherited his father's desire for vengeance. When he meets his adversary by chance, however, he not only saves Ashton's life, but falls in love with his daughter Lucy. The couple wish to marry, but will the ancient prophecy of Ravenswood stand in their way? With Scott's characteristic humour and wisdom, The Bride of Lammermoor brings to vivid life a historical incident from Scotland's turbulent past.
