This is Sir Walter Scott's 1828 novel, "The Fair Maid of Perth". Inspired by the uncanny story of the Battle of the North Inch, it tells the tale of Catherine Glover, a glove maker's daughter who kisses an armourer called Henry Smith on Valentine's day during his sleep. However, a duke has his sights set on Catherine and an abduction attempt ensues. Complete with royal intrigue and feuding clans, "The Fair Maid of Perth" will not disappoint fans of Scott's fantastic work and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was a seminal Scottish playwright, poet, and historical novelist whose novels were and remain to be widely read and enjoyed the world over. Other notables works by this author include: "Ivanhoe", "Rob Roy", "Old Mortality", "The Lady of the Lake", "Waverley", "The Heart of Midlothian", and "The Bride of Lammermoor". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
