Signet/New American Library. 1st Signet Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good In Worn Wrappers. ISBN: 0451526236. Movie edition. 485 pages. paperback. CE2623. Cover: United artists. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Rob Roy MacGregor is a romantic outlaw who comes alive in Sir Walter Scott's classic epic of the passions and struggles of the Scottish borderlands. Published in 1817, ROB ROY achieved immense success as a favorite among Scott's 'Waverley' books - works which established the historical novel as a literary form. In rich prose and vivid description, ROB ROY follows the adventures of a businessman's son, Frank Osbaldistone, who falls out of favor with his father and is sent to stay in Scotland. Innocent, English, and Protestant, Frank is intrigued by this wild and noble land. He finds himself drawn to the powerful, enigmatic figure of Rob Roy, who alongside his fiercely passionate wife, Helen, fights for justice and dignity for the Scottish people. Twists of plot, Rob Roy's cunning escapes, uprisings against English oppressors, and Frank's forbidden love for a Catholic girl, Diana, combine with superb period detail to make ROB ROY an absorbing tale - and an incomparable portrait of the haunted highlands, a great hero, and a glorious Scottish past. inventory #32876.

When Rob Roy went on sale on December 31st, 1817, it sold beyond all expectation. By the time Scott sat down to write The Heart of Midlothian, two weeks later, the entire first edition of 10,000 copies had already sold out. Scott s Rob Roy is a dark tale indeed, a story of political intrigue that features mysterious plots, spies, and secret coming and goings. It s a novel, in essence, that casts history as the world of conspiracy and the theater of illusion. Seller Inventory # LIE9781598183245

About this Item: EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised ed.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Rob Roy is set in 1715, but it is less concerned with the Jacobite Rising than with the economic and political conditions which brought it about, and the remarkable entrepreneurial spirit of the new Hanoverian capitalists which resisted it. It celebrates the freebooting daring of the hero s father in the City of London and the robust balancing of generosity and selfish calculation which is required in successful enterprise, and which motivates one of Scott s most lively creations, the Glasgow merchant Baillie Nicol Jarvie. Rob Roy is nominally a retrospective autobiography written by Frank Osbaldistone and is suffused with a sense of loss both personal and cultural. The personal is the loss of his wife Diana; the cultural is epitomised in Rob Roy who is the hunted victim of a society richer and more powerful than his own. The text is based upon the first edition, corrected with readings from the manuscript, and is supported by comprehensive historical and explanatory annotation. Seller Inventory # BTE9780748605699
