Corson B.MACLE.3

Sir Walter Scott, engraved by Charles Burt after Sir Francis Leggatt Chantrey (1839)

Burt's engraving is taken from the marble replica of Chantrey's bust at Abbotsford and clearly owes a debt to George B. Shaw's 1839 engraving of the same sculpture. It was published in the first US edition of Donald Macleod's Life of Sir Walter Scott (New York: Scribner, 1854).
