New York: D. Appleton and Co.
Jane Porter (1775-1850) and her sister Anna Maria (1778-1832) were among the most popular British novelists of the early nineteenth century. Jane’s novel The Scottish Chiefs (1810), which offered a romantic retelling of the William Wallace narrative, predated Sir Walter Scott’s Waverley novels. The work was especially popular in the United States, as evidenced here by an illustrated 1856 edition from New York.
