Scott, Walter: Woodstock. V1 [German] 27.8.2020

"Woodstock, oder: Der Cavalier" (1826) von Walter Scott ist der 22. Roman in der Reihe der "Waverley Novels". - Er kommt hier in der ebenso soliden wie vollständigen und kommentierten Übersetzung (2 Bde, 436 & 435 Seiten) von Karl Florentin Leidenfrost, die bereits 1826 erschien, im Jahr der englischen Erstausgabe.
Das Werk trägt im Original den Untertitel "Eine Geschichte des Jahres Sechzehnhunderteinundfünfzig"; es spielt also nach dem englischen Bürgerkrieg in der Zeit der Republik während der Herrschaft Cromwells. Inspiriert wurde es durch die Legende vom ›Guten Teufel von Woodstock‹, der 1649 angeblich Parlamentskommissare quälte, die eine königliche Residenz in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, in Besitz genommen hatten. Den historischen Rahmen bilden die Flucht Karls II. auf den Kontinent und sein schließlicher triumphaler Einzug in London 1660, mit dem die Restauration der britischen Monarchie beginnt.

Das Cover wurde diesmal der Ausgabe "Walter Scott’s Romane. Acht und achtzigstes Bändchen. Woodstock. Dritter Theil. Zwickau, im Verlage der Gebrüder Schumann" (1826) entnommen, während das Frontispiz die Titelillustration der Ausgabe "Woodstock. Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black (1871)" darstellt.
