The Antiquary Pdf
The Antiquary (1816) is a novel by Sir Walter Scott about several characters including an antiquary: an amateur historian, archaeologist, and collector of items of dubious antiquity. He is the eponymous character and for all practical purposes the hero, though the characters of Lovel and Isabella Wardour provide the conventional love interest. The Antiquary was Scott’s own favorite of his novels, and is one of his most critically well-regarded works; H. J. C. Grierson, for example, wrote that “Not many, apart from Shakespeare, could write scenes in which truth and poetry, realism and romance, are more wonderfully presented.”
The Antiquary Summary
At the opening of the story, Lovel meets Oldbuck while taking a coach from Edinburgh. Oldbuck, interested as he is in antiquities, has with him Gordon’s Itinerarium, a book about Roman ruins. The book interests Lovel, to the surprise of Oldbuck and by their shared interest the two become friends. Oldbuck invites Lovel to come to Monkbarns and takes the opportunity of a willing listener to divulge his ancient knowledge. In the process of which, Oldbuck shows Lovel a plot of land he purchased at great cost where he found an inscription “A.D.L.L”, which Oldbuck takes to mean “Agricola Dicavit Libens Lubens”. Edie Ochiltree, the local beggar, disputes the antiquary’s history, in one of the more amusing scenes of the story (see image at left).
