The shelf catalogue (mostly arranged by subject) of the vast library of Sir Walter Scott, author of "The Waverly Novels," comprising c. 20,000 volumes, made accessible by a 115-page index. The limited edition was mainly shared between the Bannatyne and Maitland Clubs, the latter, for which the above issue was printed, having only seventy-nine members. The library is still intact at Abbotsford, owned by the Advocates' Library of Edinburgh, house and furnishings by Scott's descendents.
