12mo, pp. [ii], 430. Early twentieth-century plain red buckram, spine titled in gilt. Rather browned and soiled, some staining.

Art nouveau bookplate of George Henderson to front pastedown, inscription at head of preface 'To George Wylie, M.D., from his friend W. Motherwell, 14th March 1817' The scarce second edition of Linday's history, preserved in a number of manuscripts and first published in Edinburgh by Robert Freebairn in 1728. This second was followed by two more in 1778 and 1814, before the Scottish Text Society's full scholarly edition at the turn of the 20th century. ESTC locates copies in 11 locations in the UK and Ireland, and just two outside (UC Berkeley and Winnipeg). This copy was presented by the Glaswegian poet, antiquary and journalist William Motherwell (1797-1835) to his friend Dr George Wylie, a notable Paisley doctor and public figure. Motherwell, following an apprenticeship, lived and worked in Paisley from the age of 15 until 1830, when he left to become editor of the Glasgow Courier. In the meantime Motherwell and Wylie had both been shareholders in the Paisley Magazine, a literary monthly started in 1828 for which Motherwell was editor. ESTC T105415. N° de réf. du libraire 1891
