"Scott's Commentary On the Whole Bible originally appeared in 174 weekly numbers starting in January 1788, and went into multiple editions. By the time of his death in 1821 nearly 200,000 pounds worth of copies had been sold in England and America (where it was particularly popular), but Scott made only 1000 pounds profit from the work, having sold the copyright in around 1810. Scott published other religious essays, but none was as successful as his Commentary, and by 1913 he was in debt to his publishers to the tune of 1200 pounds. He successfully persuaded relatives to buy up unsold copies of his works at a reduced price to clear the debt. The six volumes are heavy to postage out of Australia will be more than quoted.
