This vintage book contains Sir Walter Scott's 1816 novel, "The Antiquary". There are many characters in this story, but the eponymous antiquary represents a central figure around which the other exciting characters and events revolve. Complete with hidden treasure, a mysterious young man, and a moonlit funeral procession, this volume constitutes Walpole’s gothic novel, and is highly recommended for those with a love for the genre. Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, poet, and playwright - considered to be the first truly international English-language author. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
