Editions and Versions

Blind Harry's Wallace has been one of the most popular works of historical literature in Scotland and was one of the first books to be printed there, c. 1508, by Chepman and Myllar, Edinburgh. Several editions and versions have been published over the course of the next four centuries:

The version of Blind Harry's Wallace presented on this site is The Life and Heroick Actions of the Renoun'd Sir William Wallace, General and Governor of Scotland, by William Hamilton of Gilbertfield, first published by William Duncan, Glasgow, in 1722, last issued in 1859. The original spelling has been retained; quotation marks and paragraph breaks have been inserted for ease of comprehension.
