Walker, John (ed) The Scottish Sketches of R B Cunninghame Graham
Edinburgh: Scottish Academic Press, 1982 First edition. Brown cloth, gilt, bibliography, glossary Pagination: xii, 204. Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham has gained a reputation in so many fields, as traveller, radical politician, adventurer, horseman, humanitarian laird, that the many-sided personality has overshadowed the achievement of Graham the writer. Graham tended to play down his own literary skills, whilst praising and helping contemporaries such as Conrad, Hudson and Tschiffely. As a result, the reputation of the man has survived and grown, but his writings, especially his Scottish sketches, have tended to sink into obscurity.<P>There is no doubt that, along with his Argentine writings, Grahamís Scottish sketches are of the first rank, as his compatriots and admirers, including Hugh MacDiarmid, Frederick Niven, Compton Mackenzie and William Power, recognised.<P>In this volume Professor Walker has collected, selected and edited the best of Grahamís Scottish writings and arranged them into six mutually illuminating categories according to theme and topic. Apart from demonstrating something of Grahamís evolution as a writer, this division gives shape and unity to what were originally thirty-four separate pieces, written over a period of forty years (1896-1936).<P>The critical introduction, editorís foreword and prefaces, the footnotes, bibliography and glossary all enhance Grahamís pithy, sardonic and sentimental comments on the Scottish character and scene, and help to make this collection a valuable contribution to Scottish life and letters. Contents: Landscapes and places (Pollybaglan; Mist in Menteith; Snow in Menteith; Lochan Falloch; The Craw Road; The Grey Kirk; The Laroch; Tobar na Reil; Inch Cailleach); The Scottish character (A Vigia; Salvagia; A survival; Euphrasia); Scenes and situations (A braw day; Falkirk tryst; At Dalmary; Fidelity; With the north-east wind); Types and figures (Heather Jock; Miss Christian Jean; The Beggar Earl; A fisherman; A traveller; A retainer); The Scots abroad (A Pakeha; MíKechnie v Scaramanga; A convert; Christie Christison); Scottish stories (Beattock for Moffat; Ha Til Mi Tuliadh; Caisteal-na-Sithan; At the Ward Toll; A Princess; Brought Forward).

Brander, Michael; Macgregor, Jimmie (music) Scottish and Border Battles and Ballads
London: Seeley Service and Co, 1975 First edition. Green cloth, gilt, bibliography, index Pagination: 300. There are hundreds of weighty tomes in which can be found every version of every Scottish ballad ever sung, said or written down. In this book Michael Brander has, for the first time, selected a number of the better-known and placed them in their historical setting.<P>Each ballad is introduced by an account of the events which led to its composition and accompanied by a map off the battle where appropriate. There then follow the words of the ballad and the tune or tunes to which it is sung, arranged by Jimmie Macgregor. To aid the unenlightened Sassenach, those words which are only used north of the border have been translated.<P>It is hoped that in this way the ballads themselves may become more meaningful to more people and that those who live or travel in Scotland will find the book of use when visiting the battlefields which gave birth to so many of the ballads.<P>A record of the ballads in this book, sung by Robin Hall and Jimmie Macgregor, will shortly be appearing. Contents: Largs; Bannockburn; Otterburn; Harlaw; William Dunbar; Flodden Field; Johnnie Armstrong; Elliot of Larriston: Musselburgh Field; Corichie; Raid of the Reidswire; Bonny Earl of Murray; Parcy Reed; Kinmont Willie: Jock oí the Side; Bonny John Seton: Bonnie House oí Airlie; Alford; Kilsyth: Philiphaugh; Montrose; Dunbar: Rullion Green; Loudon Hill: Bothwell Bridge; Killiecrankie: Haughs oí Cromdale; Sheriffmuir; Prestonpans; Falkirk: Culloden; Ballads; Appendix: The battlefields; Bibliography; Index.
