Originally published in 1974, The Ballantyne-Lockhart Controversy is reprint of three tracts concerning the Ballantyne - Lockhard controversy. Lockhart was the son-in-law of Sir Walter Scott and he made the claim that the Ballantynes played a key role in the financial ruin of Scott. The Ballantynes denied the charges. This book reveals much of interest on publishing and authors during the period.
