Waverley is a 1814 historical novel by Sir Walter Scott. Initially published anonymously in 1814 as Scott's first venture into prose fiction, Waverley is often regarded as the first historical novel. The novel became so popular that Scott's later novels were advertised as being by the author of Waverley. His series of novels on similar themes written during the same period have become collectively known as the Waverley novels. In 1815, Scott was given the honour of dining with George, Prince Regent, who wanted to meet the author of Waverley. It is thought that at this meeting Scott persuaded George that as a Stuart prince he could claim to be a Jacobite Highland Chieftain, a claim that would be dramatised when George became King and visited Scotland. The Waverley Novels are a long series of books by Sir Walter Scott. They take their name from Waverley (1814), which was the first. Their publication dates span 1814-1829.Includes:Waverley or 'Tis Sixty Years Since; Guy Mannering: The Astrologer; The Antiquary; The Black Dwarf and Old Mortality [Tales of My Landlord, First Series]; Rob Roy; The Heart of Mid-Lothian [Tales of My Landlord, Second Series]; The Bride of Lammermoor and A Legend of Montrose [Tales of My Landlord, Third Series]; Ivanhoe.
