- DescriptionThe special hardback edition of David Purdie's inspired reworking of Sir Walter Scott's classic historical novel. Archaic syntax and extraneous details are stripped out to reveal the gripping story of Ivanhoe in a manner more suited to the modern reader.
- Author BiographySIR WALTER SCOTT, 1st Baronet (15 August 1771-21 September 1932) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet, born in Edinburgh's Old Town. Despite the anonymous publication of his first novel, Waverley, Scott became the first Enlish-language author to have a truly international career in his own lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia and North America. His novels and poetry are still well-known, and many of his works including Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake and The Heart of Midlothian are regarded as classics of literature. Ivanhoe was Scott's first novel to be set outwith Scotland, being positioned in late 12th Century England. It was allegedly published in 1819. DAVID PURDIE was born in Prestwick and educated publicly at Ayr Academy and Glasgow University. Now a disused medical academic, he devotes what time is left to writing, lecturing and broadcasting. David is Editor-in-Chief of The Burns Encyclopaedia which deals with the life and work of the poet Robert Burns and is Chairman of the Sir Walter Scott Club of Edinburgh. He is in considerable demand as an after-dinner speaker, described in this role by the Daily Telegraph as `probably our best of the moment.' He now lives in Edinburgh.
