About Book

Book Description
Volume I of a two volume set

This is J. G. Lockhart's famous biography about the Life of Sir Walter Scott, with a prefatory letter by J. R. Hope Scott.

About the Author
John Gibson Lockhart (1794-1854) was Sir Walter Scott's son-in-law and his biographer. Lockhart married Scott's daughter, Sophia, in 1820 and had the poet's letters, journals and personal papers in his possession upon Scott's death in 1832. He was educated at the University of Glasgow and Oxford. He was a classical scholar, a linguist and a lawyer. He wrote literary criticism, but he is known today for this memoir of Scott, which is widely considered second only to Boswell's biography of Johnson. Within these two volumes he provides meticulous details on the life and work of the great Scottish novelist.
