Edinburgh, The Scottish Academic Press for The Scottish Gaelic Texts Society, 1973 Reprint 8vo 225 x 150mm 439pp with fold-out Table of Sources. Hardcover in brown cloth bindings with dust jacket and maps to end papers. In fine condition. This is the first critical edition of the songs of John MacDonald, the 17th century bard of Keppoch, whose active life extended from the Montrose wars to the Union of the Parliaments.

This book should be of interest, not only to students of Gaelic literature, but also to historians, most of whom have hitherto had access only to the few pieces that have appeared in English translation.
