IT

the WAVERLEY Novels, that he should offer one word in commendation of a series universally acknowledged to hold the first rank in the realm of historical romance.

The world-wide fame of the Great Novelist renders anything like apology for a new Cheap Edition of his writings entirely unnecessary. A great living statesman has said of the author of 'Waverley' and his works: 'In breadth and depth of knowledge of human nature, there is no man who can bear successful comparison with Sir Walter Scott.

As to his works, they are immortal. Nothing but the extinction of civilisation can possibly extinguish the writings of Sir Walter Scott.'

It is believed that the present Edition, containing as it does many distinctive features, and issued at a price specially low considering the size and character of the volumes, will be found very serviceable to the reading public. It is of a form and type equally suitable for railway or fireside reading; while to those who wish to add to their library a handsome and useful set of these Novels, the Edition under notice, in one or other of its various bindings, will commend itself as beivg at once elegant, handy, and cheap.

Each volume in the series has been produced under the careful superintendence of the Rev. P. H. Waddell, LL.D., who, besides furnishing a Glossary of Scotch words and terms, and a translation of the foreign phrases occurring in the text, has added a number of connecting Biographical and Critical Notes, giving to the Novels a consecutive interest which they are not usually thought to possess. Some explanation of the most important allusions to national customs and habits, all of which occur so frequently in the Waverley Novels, will also be found in each romance. The want of such a guide has frequently been complained of; and the Editor has done the best in his power, in the present instance, to supply this deficiency.

Dr. Waddell has also prefixed to the first volume an Introductory Essay on Scott's Position as a Novelist,' distinguished by keen literary insight and enthusiastic admiration of the genius and brilliant achievements of the man who for a time bore the mysterious title of The Great Unknown. To the end of the last volume (ol. xxvi.), the Editor has added an interesting summarized account of the proceedings at the celebration of the Scott Centenary, which gives a new interest to the series, and makes the present issue specially attractive. Each volume is also embellished with a well-executed frontispiece and vignette, a copy from a photograph of the well-known Windsor Palace portrait of Sir Walter being the frontispiece of Waverley.'
