This carefully crafted ebook: “Tales of My Landlord – Complete Illustrated Collection: 7 Novels in One Volume” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

Tales of my Landlord is a series of novels by Sir Walter Scott that form a subset of the Waverley Novels. Of these novels, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor have been the most successful and Old Mortality is considered by modern critics to be among Scott's best work. They were so called, because they were supposed to be tales collected from the fictional landlord of the Wallace Inn at Gandercleugh. This is gone into in great depth in the introduction to The Black Dwarf. They were supposed to reflect aspects of Scottish regional life.

Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. He was the first modern English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and poetry are still read, and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor.
