Description
Information
On the auspicious night that Guy Mannering is shown to the house of the Bertrams of Ellengowan, their heir is born and Mannering, a sceptical astrologer, predicts his future.

Five years later the prophecy is fulfilled, and Harry Bertram finds himself at the centre of a plot to rob him of his inheritance. Harry's subsequent struggles are set against a background of chaos and upheaval in a socially fragmented land where everyone, from landowners to gypsies, is searching for their rightful place.

The text, taken from the authoritative Edinburgh Edition of the Waverly Novels, follows 'Guy Mannering' as it was first published in 1815, with the addition of significant passages from the manuscript that have been omitted from all previous editions. This volume also contains a new critical introduction and a chronology, bibliography, historical and explanatory notes and glossary.
