Robert Cadell (1788–1849) was a bookseller and publisher closely associated with Sir Walter Scott. Cadell took care of Scott in the writer’s last years, profiting handsomely from arrangements made with Scott’s family after his death such that they were absolved from debt in return for Cadell’s exclusive right to republish Scott’s novels and biographical material.
