Millgate Union Catalogue of Walter Scott Correspondence

Sir Walter Scott as Clerk to the Court of Session

The immense literary fame of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) ensured the survival of a huge number of his letters, their topics ranging from old ballads to the major political questions of the day, and Scott himself kept very many of the letters he received. The present Union Catalogue, compiled by the late Professor Jane Millgate (University of Toronto), provides for the first time records for over 14,000 letters written by or to Scott that have proved traceable worldwide in autograph, transcript, or printed form, including the nearly 10,000 letters held by the National Library of Scotland.
