DEDICATED 

TO THE MEMORY OF 

DONALD MACKINNON, M.A. 

LATE PROFESSOR OF CELTIC LANGUAGES AND LITERATURE 

IN THE UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH 

TO WHOSE ASSISTANCE AND ENCOURAGEMENT 

THE AUTHOR WAS MUCH INDEBTED IN PREPARING THIS WORK

PREFACE 

About the middle of last century the need for a Biblio- 
graphy of Gaelic Literature was much felt by scholars and 
others interested in that language. Since John Reid 
published his Bibliotheca Scoto-Celtica in Glasgow in 1832, 
a great many new books appeared in Gaelic from the 
printing-presses of Edinburgh, Glasgow, and other places, 
but hitherto there has been no work of reference available 
to guide the student in his selection of suitable books. 
Reid's work dealt with Gaelic Literature under several 
different subjects, and although it possessed considerable 
merit, so backward was the state of education over the 
Highlands and Islands of Scotland at the time of its 
appearance and for many years afterwards that the book 
was hardly known even to those who had a fair knowledge 
of the Gaelic language. 

About sixteen years ago I resolved to compile a 
Bibliography of Books printed in the Gaelic of Scotland 
from their Incunabula to the present year. I was aware 



viii TYPOGRAPHIA SCOTO-GADELICA 

of the magnitude and difficulty of the task, but many 
friendly letters from literary Celts who appreciated the 
value of my work helped in no small degree to encourage 
me to persevere in my effort. 

The late Professor Donald Mackinnon placed at my 
disposal very valuable bibliographic material which he 
had collected for many years before he became the first 
occupant of the Celtic Chair in Edinburgh. It is not 
possible for me to acknowledge fully my indebtedness 
to this collection. 

The reader will see that I have confined myself en- 
tirely to books printed in the Gaelic of Scotland, which 
I have arranged in alphabetical sequence according to 
the names of the authors. Only in very few instances 
has this order been departed from, and in each case for 
some reason. 

I have given a verbatim et literatim transcript of the 
Title-Pages, adding a full collation of each work by 
pagination rather than by signatures. Occasionally I 
have given a detailed description of some books and their 
authors, more especially where the nature of the works 
invited comments or statements that would likely be 
appreciated by readers. In transcribing some of the 
Titles, I had, in a few instances, to correct manifest 
typographic errors that led to ambiguity or obscurity, 
and which, in a few instances, even amounted to mis- 



PREFACE ix 

statements. No attempt has been made to reproduce the 
assortment of type used in the originals. 

I have included the leading religious tracts and 
pamphlets, as well as tractates of controversial literature, 
ecclesiastical and secular. Mere leaflets of no merit or 
originality are excluded. 

It is most likely that there have been some booklets 
and editions of which I have not heard, but it is my 
belief that the reader in this work has before him practi- 
cally a full Inventory of the Printed Books that appeared 
up to date in the Gaelic of Scotland. To ensure compre- 
hensiveness and accuracy I have spared neither labour 
nor expense. I have searched the leading Libraries of 
Great Britain, and I have been in communication with 
Colonial and Continental Librarians and Booksellers. I 
have approached private collectors as far as I could go, 
and I have for many years scanned and noted the pages 
of booksellers' and auctioneers' catalogues. 

I trust that literary Celts, Booksellers, Librarians, as 
well as the general public, will find in this work something 
of interest and value. It will, I hope, show those ignorant 
of Gaelic that the venerable language has a wide field of 
literature ; and to the scholar already cognisant of that 
fact it will reveal the exact extent as well as the nature 
and quality thereof. Gaelic literature, like the literature 
of most countries, has been contributed to by native

Poets, Theologians, Philologists, Educationists, and 
Patriots, as well as by men and women from many 
spheres in life, to whose genius and efforts their country- 
men of the present day owe, in great measure, their 
intellectual and material advancement alongside the other 
races that make up our mighty empire. 

The Author desires to express his acknowledgments 
to the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland for 
their offer of financial assistance towards the expenses of 
the publication of this work.

Dewar (Donald), Songs. circa 1780. 

It is said that this Poet published his songs, but after 
some correspondence with natives of the district where he 
lived, we have not been able to ascertain whether they were 
printed or not. There is a tombstone in Fortingal Church- 
yard to his memory. He died in 1792 aged fifty-three. 
He was a weaver to trade, and lived in the hamlet of 
Astrasgard, Fortingall. On one occasion the Astrasgard 
wives bought herring from a fish hawker during warm 
weather, and the poet commemorated the result in the 
following verse. 

Sud mar chaidh *n sgadan shaileadh suas,

This periodical was started in Toronto in June 1871 by 
Angus Nicholson, at the time editor of the ^Canada Scotsman* 
Only a few numbers appeared when Mr. Nicholson was 
appointed Emigration Agent for the North of Scotland, and 
at the same time the office of ' The GaeV was transferred 
to Glasgow. Articles appeared in it in Gaelic and English, 
and for years it was very successful, and very popular among 
Highlanders at home and in Canada. It was printed on thick 
and thin papers : the latter was for the Colonies. The price 
per copy was sixpence. With the first number was issued an 
English Supplement on large paper which is very seldom met 
with. For the last two years of its existence the property 
in * The GaeV was held by Messrs. Maclachlan & Stewart,

Copies are often met with lacking the Title-leaf, but other-

the nature of the GaeHc poetry appended to the English text 
before the impression was sold out, and to conceal his 
connexion with the work had the Titles cut out. The 
Satire, ' Baran Supair* refers to a Mr. Maxwell, factor to

This work is now somewhat rare^ but not by any means 
so scarce as was thought fifty years ago. We know ot 
more than thirty copies of the work. The late John F. 
Campbell was the first to draw attention to its value and 
rarity in vol. iv. of the West Highland Tales^ 1864. Ever 
since the book has been much sought after by Celtic 
scholars. As noted there were three Gaelic Titles issued, 
and any one of these goes with the English Title. Rarely 
are two Gaelic Titles bound with the English Title. We 
have only met with one copy that contained Gaelic Titles 
II. and III. Most copies that gave Title IV. have Don 
before Co-Fhreagarrach corrected to Aon. We have not 
met with the word ' Leabhar-Receudair ' corrected as given 
in Reid's ' Bibliotheca Scoto-Celtica.'' All these Gaelic Titles 
were translations from English, and the orthography suggests 
that there were two Translators. In any case the three 
Gaelic Titles and the one English Title, as well as the two 
variants in the " Advertisement by the Editor," must have 
been printed either contemporaneously or in rapid succession to 
replenish an insufficient issue of " Titles and Advertisement." 
The work was edited by the Rev. Dr. James MacLagan of 
Blair- AthoU, assisted by others. John Gillies knew no 
Gaelic. The published price was seven shillings and six- 
pence. As much as four guineas are now paid for choice 
copies.

This Edition is clearly a reprint with the orthography of 
the Original Edition unaltered. What the date of the Original 
Edition was, is not known. The Author himself states in his 
preface to the Fifth Edition, published in 1837, that the First 
Edition was printed twenty-eight years previously. This fixes 
the date of the First Edition at 1809. In the preface to the 
Fourth Edition the Author states as clearly that the first 
printed Edition appeared twelve years previously, which would 
make the date 1815. It is possible, as the preface to the 
fourth is undated, that it was written years previous to its 
publication, and this would make the statements agree.

This Pamphlet was reprinted from the ' Gentleman' s Maga- 
zine.^ Thomas Ford Hill, the Editor, was a Londoner, who 
travelled in the Highlands in 1782, and took down phoneti- 
cally from the Gaelic-speaking people, ballad poetry attributed 
to Ossian. These poems were printed by him in a series of 
articles which he contributed to the ' Gentleman' s Magazine^ 
the first article appearing in the December No. 1782. The 
reprint was issued undoubtedly in 1784, as Walker quotes it. 
Vide '■Historical Memoirs of The Irish Bards^ London, 1786, 
pages 38 and 39, footnotes. The poems here given are the 
same as are still recited by the natives, showing that nothing 
of what was given by Macpherson was ever current in the 
Highlands. This tractate is now extremely rare. The late 
John F. Campbell was unable to see a copy after an exhaustive 
search. Vide * Leahhar na Feinne^ We know of only 
five copies.

This little book is now excessively rare. We have seen 
but two copies. The author was a native of Ardgour, where 
he had a small farm. He was converted under the earnest 
preaching of the Haldines, and he composed a few spiritual 
hymns. On some occasions, when passion or resentment 
moved him, Kennedy composed songs which he deemed 
worthy of publication alongside his spiritual effusions. His 
judgment in this respect was well founded, for his songs are 
still very popular while the hymns are forgotten. The Con- 
tents are ist, a hymn of twenty-five verses ; 2nd, a hymn of 
seventeen verses ; 3rd, ' Oran do'n duine nach leabh a leahhar^ 
which is a religious poem of twenty-five verses ; 4th, * Oran

fourteen numbers at sixpence on coarse paper and ninepence

The English-Gaelic part of the work was by John Mac-

Preface to this part of the work he criticised severely the 
first or Gaelic-English part as written by M'Alpine. It

questioning and even disparaging his Gaelic Scholarship.

TYPOGRAPHIA SCOTO-GADELICA 173 

Edition. . . . Edinburgh : Maclachlan & Stewart. 
1852." i2mo. 

This is stated to be the ' Third Edition^ but circum- 
stances and inferences point very strongly to this Edition 
itself as the first edition that did appear separate from the 
Dictionary. In 1853 190 copies were reprinted, and 260 in 
1872. 

Neil M' Alpine, the Author of the Gaelic Dictionary and 
Grammar, was teacher of the Kilmeny School, Islay. In 
his native Island of Islay the appearance of the Dictionary 
brought him notoriety instead of remuneration and sympathy. 
When the destitution of 1846 was severely felt over all the 
Western Isles, M'Alpine wrote those that attempted to 
relieve the distress, pointing out to them the starving condi- 
tion of the Islay people. This representation resulted in a 
boat with meal being sent to Lochindal. This meritorious 
step on the part of M*Alpine was, however, construed by 
the laird of the time as reflecting on his dignity and tres- 
passing on his prerogative, and he would have the poor 
schoolmaster dismissed. The Presbytery, to whom at that 
time teachers were responsible, sympathised, not with the 
teacher, but with the laird. Where Presbyteries are judges 
it is well known, or ought to be, that neither the School- 
house nor the Manse has the slightest chance against the 
Mansion House. After years of wrangling — the parishioners 
simply looking on, not daring to interfere or threaten on 
behalf of their true benefactor — M^Alpine was dismissed 
from his school, and thrown utterly destitute on the charity 
of his indigent friends. He died in receipt of parochial relief 
in 1867 at the age of eighty years. A very handsome tomb- 
stone of polished granite was erected to his memory by his 
fellow-countrymen, which bears a very suitable inscription.

Angus Macaskill was a crofter and fisherman. He died 
in or about the year 1890 in the Parish of Eddrachaolis. He 



174 TYPOGRAPHIA SCOTO-GADELICA 

left no family. He took the books away as soon as they were 
printed, but never paid for them. He afterwards repented 
and turned religious, and it is said that he sought out as many 
copies of his book as he could procure and destroyed them. 
It turned out, however, that his repentance was repentance 
repented of. He became very anxious to reprint his book 
with the addition of some fresh pieces, but although he 
offered some a share of the profits of this new venture, he 
was not successful in inducing a partner to join him,

John Maccormick, the Author of these novels, is a native 
of the Parish of Kilfinchean, in Mull. He attended the 
University of Glasgow in the early eighties of last century, 
where he distinguished himself by the excellent idiomatic 
Gaelic he spoke. As a fluent and accurate Gaelic speaker 
and scholar he had few, if any equals, at the University. He 
afterwards was engaged at the ' lona Press ' in lona, where

Gaelic, but which we have not seen.

We have not seen this booklet. SheriiF-Substitute Hugh 
M'Culloch was drowned through the capsizing of a boat 
while crossing the Meikle Ferry near Dornoch in the year 
1809. Many others were drowned also. The Sheriff was 
noted for his piety. The Elegy was composed by Samuel 
Matheson and is given in the various editions of the Hymns 
of Donald Matheson of Kildonan. Bound up with the 
Elegy on Sheriff Macculloch is another Elegy, also composed 
by Samuel Matheson on those drowned at Newfoundland, 
with the following Title : " Marbh-rann do'n Mhuintear a 
bhathadh aig Nuafoundland air an Laong ^chaidh e Gallaobh^ 
We have a copy of this Elegy in MS. It is a mere 
doggrel. It refers to the loss of what used to be known in 
Sutherland and Caithness as ' Long Mhor America.^ 

We made a full inquiry regarding the loss of this vessel. 
The facts are as follows. Some of the tenants on Sir John 
Sinclair's estate were apprised of Sir John's intention to turn 
parts of his estate into large sheep farms. They resolved not 
to wait until evicted, but emigrate to Canada. They were 
joined also by a large number of the poor people, who made 
up their minds to seek their fortune in the New World. In 
early September in the year 1807 a large brig, after calling 
at one or two places, arrived at Scrabster Roads, and during 
Friday and Saturday of the Martinmas Market at Thurso, 
completed her boarding of the passengers and their luggage. 



1 86 TYPOGRAPHIA SCOTO-GADELICA 

A violent storm which destroyed the crops of the district 
delayed the vessel in harbour for ten days. She then sailed 
on a tediously long voyage till she reached the banks of New^- 
foundland, w^here she got becalmed in a thick fog, so that 
she had to anchor. A violent gale arose, and the vessel 
drifted from her moorings to a rock-bound coast. To make 
matters vv'orse the seamen w^ere drunk. At last the vessel 
wzs so shattered against the rocks that she foundered. It is 
said that Alexander Gunn of Coilteil sang on deck the 46th 
Psalm in Gaelic, and as the vessel was actually sinking he 
uttered aloud, *' O thusa a Thighearn da geill na duilean dian 
cur agus buain aig an aon am" It used to be believed in the 
North that only three souls were saved. A lady lives in 
England at present (1906) to whom a survivor communicated 
full details of the loss of the ill-fated ship, and the sufferings 
of the survivors in Newfoundland, who had to walk twelve 
miles, wet and hungry, through ice and snow to the nearest 
habitation. Thirteen souls were saved. A Thurso corre- 
spondent in reporting the sad loss of the vessel to the Inver- 
ness Journal in 1808, called her ' The Rambler of Leith^

This is the first Dictionary published in the GaeHc of 
Scotland. The Society in Scotland for Propagating Christian 
Knowledge engaged the Author to prepare this work for their 
schools over the Highlands and Islands. The various words 
and names are not given in alphabetical order, but under 
various subjects into which the work is divided. Copies 
seldom turn up ; value from 1 2s. to 35s. The Records of 
the S.P.C.K. state that the Poet, years after this, was dis- 
missed from their service on account of his indelicate songs.

This Edition is now very rare ; on a copy before us it is 
written in old handwriting, that many copies of the work 
were burned by the common hangman in Edinburgh in 1751. 
A good copy is worth about ^^3, and an uncut copy ten 
guineas. We know of about a dozen copies. It is not im- 
probable that the book was printed in Glasgow. The type 
is identical with what was used in printing Macfarlane's 
version of the Psalms in 1752.

This is a reprint of the Edition of 1751, it contains no

The text of this Edition seems to be what was left unsold 
of the impression of 1834, with a new Title and Memoir 
added. To help the sale of the stock on hand as well as to 
present readers with the complete work, the publication of 
the free pieces is announced in the Memoirs as follows : 
" Several persons having expressed a wish to obtain the 
works of Macdonald complete. To supply this demand a 
small impression of the Supplement has been printed with 
this brief and imperfect account of the author and his work" 
A small impression of this Supplement, but without a Title, 
was actually printed in 1839. It is printed with smaller type 
than the rest of the work and was meant to bind with the 
earlier part, though in signatures it does not follow that part. 
It is only met with in rebound copies of the 1839 Edition. 
We have only met with three copies of this Supplement.

This is the same volume as the one dated 1776, only a 
new Title is printed for the work, with a new date. This 
arose from the unpopularity of the work, which prevented 
its sale. The booksellers, having a large stock on hand, issued 
a fresh Title and eliminated ' Vol. /.' This move served 
two purposes : (i) it promised no further portion of the 
work at a subsequent date ; (2) the unwary bought it either 
as a new work, or as the complement of * Fol. /.' — the 
second volume that never appeared.

The Author gives a poetic sketch of his life in a preface

them in their struggles through life. He was on a city 
Police Force at one time, and left it ; a song on his work 
and position there shows its uncongeniality to his nature. 
Macdougall was known over the Western Isles by the sobri-

of 24 pages of Gaelic songs headed * Orain Ghaelach^ 
The printer was Menzies, Lawnmarket. There was 
apparently no Title-page issued. The first song of this 
Pamphlet is * Oran mar gun deanadh te e do leannan^ Air

Gun d-thainig sgealpaire do ghill og,

with historical and critical notes, and a comprehensive 
Glossary of Provincial words. By John Mackenzie, 
Esq., Honorary Member of the Ossianic Society of 
Glasgow, the Gaelic Society of London, etc., etc., 
with an historical introduction, containing an account 
of the manners, habits, etc., of the ancient Cale- 
donians. By James Logan, Esq., F.S.A.S., corre-

71 York Street, Belfast. 1841." La 8vo. 

The book was stereotyped by the publishers, Messrs. 
M'Gregor, Poison & Co., Glasgow, in 1841. It was 
published in two volumes at 12s. for the complete work. 
The first volume was more in demand than the second, so 
that it was sold out, leaving a stock of the second volume in 
the hands of the publishers. A second impression of the 
first volume was issued to complete sets. The plates were 



248 TYPOGRAPHIA SCOTO-GADELICA 

sold to Messrs. Blackie, the Glasgow publishers, who after- 
wards sold them to Messrs. Maclachlan & Stewart of 
Edinburgh. The publishers to whom the plates were sold 
put their own name on the title-page of the second issue of 
Part I. In the First Edition there was an engraving of a 
rural scene taken from Alexander Macdonald's ' Dairymaid.' 
This plate got destroyed, and in substitution thereof, a view 
of Rothesay Bay is given as a frontispiece in the later 
Editions. The First Edition has only 376 pages; subsequent 
Editions have 402 pages.

The Poet Donald Macleod was born in Glendale in Slcye 
in 1787, where he also died in 1873. He composed a great 
many songs that were never printed, and some are in manu- 
script in possession of his family. 

After the publication of his volume of Songs in i8ii, 
the Poet went to North America, where he Hved for some 
years among the Gaelic-speaking communities. On his 
return to Scotland, Macleod lived in his native parish, where 
he farmed a croft which he had rent free from MacLeod of 
MacLeod as Fisherman, and family Bard. He was known 
in Skye as ' Domhnull nan Oran^ 

It is said that he had a * Prospectus ' printed of a new 
and enlarged Edition of his Poems, which was to appear 
with the Title ' An Sealladh nach Fhaicear* The Author 
solicited subscriptions not from those who would expect 
value for their money, but from the Well-to-do, who had wit 
and foresight to see that they were to infer from the oracular 
terminology of the Title of the New Work, that the 
^ Prospectus^ was an appeal causa henignitatis^ to help an 
impecunious Minstrel to tide over a temporary incon-

These three songs are carefully annotated on the margin 
by giving the English of the more difficult Gaelic words 
used by the Author. Each song has a page given to its Title. 
The second song is " Oran Connsachaidh no Rtasanachaidh. 
Ratiocinating Song with the English Doctor" The third 
song is " Oran Molaidh do Mr. Domhnul Macneacail^ Minisdeir 
Liosmoir." The booklet ends thus: "Some may censure 
the Author for having given so many uncommon words in 
his translation, while he might have easily got more familiar 
ones. Let such know that the author considered himself as 
bound in honour to give at least some of the most scientific 
phrases when handling a subject where Dr. Johnson's name 
is mentioned." This work is excessively rare ; the Author 
knows of but three copies.

was over fifty years of age before she discovered that she 
possessed a latent poetic faculty, which, as she tells us, in her 
song on Skye, burst into flame as a result of her sufferings, 
and the indignities to which she had to submit through a 
miscarriage of justice.

Colmar. 1684." i8mo. i f. r. Title, v. Grant of 
Priviledge + 2 ff . Dedication + 248 pp. 

The Grant of Priviledge printed on verso of Title-leaf 
gave the Author the sole right to print the Psalms in Erse 
for eleven years. The Gaelic Address to the Reader finishes 
w^ith four lines of poetry frequently quoted, but Kirk's 
correction of the second line, viz. the elimination of the 
w^ord '' glan^ is never given effect to in such quotations. 
This version found no favour in Gaelic-speaking parishes j 
indeed there is no proof that it w^as ever used in any church. 
It follows the ' Caogad'' closely for the first fifty Psalms, and 
for the last hundred Psalms, Kirk had to rely on himself. 
It appears that five or even six hundred copies were printed. 
There is in existence in the handwriting of Kirk the 
following note regarding the work. " Edinburgh, June 23, 
1688. Andrew Chambers, Stationer, reckoned of the Irish 
psalm book in his shop 106 unbound, 115 bound, sum total 
221. The number given to Gideon Shaw was 322, whereof 
I received to my best remembrance 48. The binding of 
each plain book was 10^. The guilded was the usual rate of 
the town. Allow to Mr. Chambers a httle book I took of 
Mr. Claud's on the Sacraments, and bid him sell off as many 
as he can at lo^ piece, and give some out to the Stationers 
who may get them off by the correspondents & I will 
allow a penny each book for vending besides the binding. 
I will take for them partly money, partly books in exchange." 
Very rare. Good copies sell from three to six pounds.

2 fF. Do chum an Leghthora + 59 fF. Text. Catchwords 
are used, but no pagination. The quotation from Col. iii. 
16 is an original translation, and difFers from that given 
in the Irish Nev^^ Testament of 1602. It is doubtful if 
indeed the existence of the Irish New Testament was 
known in Argyleshire at the time. This little book is 
now extremely rare. We know of five or six copies. 

The other hundred Psalms were printed in Edinburgh 
in 1694. The work was corrected as it passed through the 
Press by the Rev. John Maclaurin, the father of Professor 
Maclaurin, the Editor of Sir Isaac Newton's Principia. 

We have considered very carefully the question whether 
this completed Edition of the Psalms by the Synod of Argyle 
was published as well as printed in the year 1694, and we have 
come, but with considerable hesitation, to the conclusion 
(i) that the completed work, printed according to the Records 
of the Synod of Argyle in 1694, was also published and 
circulated in that same year ; (2) that the Shorter Catechism 
was issued with it, bearing the same date. As no copy is 
known to exist of this Edition, naively designated * The 
Edition which nobody saw^ it has been suggested that from 
the disturbed nature of the country at the time, the whole 
impression was withheld from circulation until 1702. This 
would account for the issue of the Shorter Catechism of 
1702 being designated ' Third Edition^ No reliance, 
however, can be placed on the Ordinal that denotes the 
Edition of a Gaelic book, for a printer ignorant of Gaelic, 
with probably a printed Title-page before him for a * Copy^ 
would print verbatim what was before him, except as far as 
printer's name, place, and date required alteration. The 
1694 Edition inadvertently reproduced verbatim for the 
Catechism the Title-page of the 1659 Edition [second] ; or 



320 TYPOGRAPHIA SCOTO-GADELICA 

the 1694 Edition was itself similarly reproduced in the 
Edition of 1702. While the latter alternative is by no means 
improbable, as Editions of subsequent dates to 1715 show, it 
is very much more Hkely in this case that the initial and 
misleading error was made in the former. To state in 
extenso the premises leading to this view would take up much 
space, and possibly they would not by some be accepted as 
proving quod erat demonstrandum. 

We have examined an Edition of the Psalms bearing date 
1707, and bound with it was the Catechism of even date 
designated ' Fifth Edition^ but we have not seen the Edition 
of 1705, referred to in this work, and which ought to have 
with it the ^Fourth Edition^ of the Catechism. Allowing 
the existence of a 1705 Edition as real, and not a misprint 
or miscopy for 1707, we can account for all the earlier 
Editions of the Catechisms and Psalms, without assuming 
the existence of a 1694 Edition, viz. ist, 1651 j 2nd, 1659 ; 
3rd, 1702; 4th, 1705 ; 5th, 1707 ; 6th, 1715. 

As stated, we hold to the view that the complete Edition 
of the Psalms appeared in 1694. The Synod of Argyle 
were granted the privilege to print this version of the 
Psalms for nineteen years, and to forbid any one from interfer- 
ing with their right. No work until published could be 
registered for any privilege then any more than now, for 
^ no book can be registered before it is published^ has always 
been a dictum in copyright. It is said that a copy of the 
Edition of 1694 without a Title-page was sold in the 
Duke of Sussex Library [vide No. 1247, ^•^' ^^^- ^^445 
page 50). If any reliance can be placed on the date assigned, 
it must have been inferred from the Title of the Catechism, 
as the ' Grant of Priviledge ' on the verso of Title was not 
available.

TYPOGRAPHIA SCOTO-GADELICA 331 

Angus Lamont the Poet was born in the Island of Ulva 
about the year 1770, where in course of time he became a 
teacher. At the same time Lamont was the tenant of a 
small farm on the island, to the cultivation of which, with 
the help of his neighbours, he paid a great deal of attention. 
It was while in lona most of his Songs and Poems were 
composed. In Lamont's poetry we find frequent allusions 
to industries and customs now quite obsolete, but still re- 
membered by the older generation of the Hebrides. The 
Editor has done ample justice to the work of his near 
kinsman, who died in lona in the year 1856, leaving a 
family that attained to very important positions in Glasgow, 
Edinburgh, and abroad. We may further remark that the 
Celtic scholar will find in Lamont's poetry many rare — 
if not unique words — and expressions, worthy of being 
enshrined in a standard lexicographical work. One hundred 
copies of this work were printed for private circulation by 
the Editor.

Circumstances seem to indicate that the work was 
printed in 1833 and not in 1830. The Editor undoubtedly 
took extravagant liberties with these poems. This Edition 
rightly omits the song, ' A Chuachag nan Craobh^ which was 
composed not by Ross but by Macdonald of Dalness, many 
years before Ross was born. Macdonald's life and misfortunes 
had much in common with Ross. A very rare Edition.
