About this product
- DescriptionThe third of the Waverley Novels is dominated by two old men, Jonathan Oldbuck (the Antiquary of the title) and the beggar Edie Ochiltree. Together they apply their kwledge of the past to sort out the confusion of the present, and in doing so restore the fortunes of ancient houses. This was Scott's favourite among his vels, and presents a quizzical and amusing view of the profession of history and, by implication, of Scott's own practice as writer and collector.
