In the present edition Mr. Meldrum's "Memoir of the Author" is retained, as are the introductions contributed by S.R. (Samuel Rutherford) Crockett to the respective stories. I have added two volumes to include Galt's fine Covenanting romance, 'Ringan Gilhaize',.......I have revised and extended the existing glossary....A fresh attraction is provided by the illustrations from the drawings of C.E. Brock...." (from the preface of William Roughead). Watson (NCBEL, v.3, 1969) lists the 1895 set as 10 volumes and this one as 8, a misprint. Bateson (CBEL, v.3, 1940, 1969 printing) notes this edition but not the earlier one. A Very Good set with soiled, chipped but sound jackets, one water-stained, $125. Another copy: top edges gilt, others uncut. Fore-edges foxed. Fine in very good jackets.
