The authoritative Edinburgh Edition brings modern scholarship to bear on Scott's (1771-1832) great Waverly Novels--which marked the emergence of the modern novel in the western world--and, at the same time, excises the ponderous pseudo-scholarship that characterized Scott's late Magnum Opus edition, and editions ever since. Saint Ronan's Well (1824) is a classic tale of Scottish country life. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
