Edinb. 1823 This allegorical Scottish poem was written about 1453, and preserves many peculiarities of ancient English metrical composition which were already obsolete. It is largely devoted to the expression of eulogies on the house of Douglas—"the lineage of the Bleeding Heart;" and has therefore been supposed to embody a satire on the King, James II, who had slain Earl William, and with whom the Douglases were at feud.
The name of the artist, William Penny, is almost unknown, but by the few who have seen his performances he is recognized as an extraordinary genius. Both in fancy and in execution, the drawings with which he has embellished “the Howlat” are
exquisitely perfect. 24419 INNES (Cosmo) Scotland in the Middle Ages ; Sketches of early

(Vautrollier, 1584) The excessive rarity of this first edition is too well known to require any comment. Being unable to get the work printed in Scotland it was confided to Vantrollier in London, who had set up sheets B to M m (pages 17 to 560) when by order of the Archbishop of Canterbury the entire impression was seized and destroyed, with the exception of the very few copies sent away
previously as the sheets were finished. 24436 Knox (John) Psalmes of David and Liturgy, with Calvin's Cate

Imprentit, in the zeir of God Ane M.V.C.LVJ. (1556) An excessively rare poem, addressed by the maker to all Catholyke Kyngis and Prencis. Only one other copy is known: that in the Britwell library, which is the identical copy recorded by Lowndes as having fetched £25. 10s. This one, formerly Leckie's and more recently Laing's, furnished the text of the Early English Text Society's reprint. John Scot is supposed to have printed it at Edinburgh; but for the same reason which impelled him to conceal his name in the St. Andrew's edition of Lyndsay's Dialogue he also withheld it here. The two woodcuts are curious early specimens of Scottish engraving. The first is a standing figure of a crowned King in armour, on the title, the other on the last page represents Christ sitting in
judgment on the last day, with the words “ Respice finem." 24448 Leith. ENGLISH (Peter) Survey of Policy, a free vindication of

Leith, 1653 EXTREMELY RARE ; being probably the first book printed at Leith after Cromwell had established the printing-press in that town, from which the first Scottish newspaper issued in 1653. It has been said that Evan Tyler, of Edinburgh printed at Leith in 1652, but this is more than unlikely: he may
have had a shop in Leith.
