Sir Walter Scott, engraving by Edward Lacey of a medallion by Alfred Joseph Stothard derived from a bust by Sir Francis Leggatt Chantrey (1832)

This engraving is based on a medallion cast in 1826 by Alfred Joseph Stothard which was derived from the marble replica of Chantrey's bust at Abbotsford. It was published as the frontispiece to The Waverley Album: Containing Fifty-one Line Engravings to Illustrate the Novels and Tales of Sir Walter Scott (London: Charles Heath, 1832). The ornament was engraved by Samuel Mitan after a design by Henry Corbould.
