    I travel used bookstores a fair bit, and have never seen them; Scott is in fact rarely seen on the shelves except rarely for the Waverly Novels. I did inherit a complete bound set of those and the Tales are not among them, but Scott's output was of course prodigious.

    Project Gutenberg* ("PG") has several of Sir Walter Scott's (two t's, please - generally, Scot is the ethnicity, Scott is the family) novels available for free. Most of the books on the website are transcriptions of books that are out of print or are otherwise no longer published. The Clan Scott Society offered the Sir Walter Scott electronic books to members a few years back and I've been wading my way through them in order, taking an occasional break to read something different from time to time. I'm maybe 2/3 through what I have at this point.


    To the OP's question, it's likely the PG site has some histories available for your perusal. Bonne chance!


    *From https://www.gutenberg.org/about/: "Project Gutenberg is an online library of free eBooks.

    Project Gutenberg was the first provider of free electronic books, or eBooks. Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, invented eBooks in 1971 and his memory continues to inspire the creation of eBooks and related content today."
