Rob Roy

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Rob Roy is a historical novel that tells the story of Frank Osbaldistone, an Englishman who travels to Northumberland during the 1715 Jacobite Rebellions in pursuit of restoring his father's wealth and honor and marrying the woman with whom he has fallen in love. Along the way, Frank meets the novel's hero, Rob Roy MacGregor, a gentlemanly outlaw and the notorious leader of the Highlanders, who assists Frank in his quests. Scott based his titular hero on the Rob Roy of Scottish folklore, who is sometimes referred to as the "Scottish Robin Hood." One of the author's most popular novels, Rob Roy is noted for its descriptions of the living conditions endured by many early 18th century Scots and its use of the Scots dialect. Rob Roy was first published by Scott as a novel "by the author of 'Waverley'" and is therefore known as one of the Waverley novels.

There is some scuffing, mainly to the top and bottom of the spine and very minor foxing on the odd page, but overall it is internally a nice and clean copy.

First edition, 1891.
