That year, Scott's centenary was celebrated across the globe, as I found out when I came across a long account of the festivities in the New York Tribune. The attention given to Scott in an American newspaper almost forty years after his death, and the praise heaped upon him, is remarkable, taking up some of the front page and an entire internal page:
|"Everybody who reads at all has read something from the pen of Scott" - New York Tribune August 10th 1871|
But the Tribune's account of Scott's life, death and work is not only interesting as a time-capsule of Scott's reputation at a certain moment - it's useful too. As part of their commemoration, they included a handy and quite thorough bibliography of Scott's writings. I'll excerpt the poetry and novel lists here, because they're still helpful (particularly the dates of publication, assuming they're accurate).
Postscript: I'd go out on a limb and venture that the author of this Tribune profile was William Winter, because of the similarities it shares with this account of Scott in Winter's Gray Days and Gold.
