The Lady of the Lake by Sir Walter Scott 1884 E. Worthington
First published in 1810, "The Lady of the Lake" was so influential in the 19th century that it inspired a revival of interest in Scottish history and culture. This edition comes with an introduction, notes and a glossary done by R. W. Taylor, an assistant master at the prestigious Rugby School, a British boarding school founded in the 16th century.
The duodecimo format book measures 7 ½" x 5" and has 232 gilt edged pages, plus a black and white illustration just before the back endpapers (which are printed in a pretty brown-and-cream floral design). Good condition, with the pages clean and tight, but bumping to the corners and spine, the front hinge cracked, and one worn-through spot where the front board meets the spine (photo #).
