Walter Scott had been familiar with the extraordinary story of the Siege of Malta in 1565. He composed Anne of Geierstein, Tales of a Grandfather and History of Scotland. Scott had finished Count Robert and Castle Dangerous, and was about to leave on his voyage to Malta in a vain search for an improvement in his health. The base-text for the present text of The Siege of Malta is the original manuscript, which is entirely in Scott's own hand, and which was never printed. This present text is an attempt to make available to scholars and more general readers what Scott wrote, or what he may reasonably be conjectured as having intended to appear in print, taking into account the editorial and printing procedures that governed the production of his late novels, and the expectations of contemporaneous readers.
