the old scottish gothic

More Georgian Gothic from Valancourt Books!

This is really one of those books I would buy based only on the title: The Caledonian Bandit: or, The Heir of Duncaethal, A Romance of the Thirteenth Century by Catherine “Mrs” Smith. How good does that sound? I, like Jane Austen, enjoy the Gothic pulp fiction of the Regency. First published in 1811, it is reproduced here in it’s original, unabridged two volume edition. According to Valancourt Books, only two known copies of the original text survive. Valancourt’s edition includes an intriguing introductory essay focusing on Scottish Gothic fiction.
