Rab [A Yarrow dog] and his Maister

By Geo. Hope Tait

Fore-Word by John Buchan

Published by A Walker & Son, Galashiels, 1918. Scarce First Edition. Original decorative card covers with its scarce illustrated dustwrapper. [xiv] + 48pp + 4 pages of notes at the rear of the book. There is a colour frontispiece by William Walls R.S.A.

Lowland Scots poetry about a Border shepherd and his collie dog.

CONDITION
A good copy and scarce in original dust jacket (105 years old). The dust jacket has a little nibbling from the top of the spine and there are a couple of closed tears to the bottom of the spine which has been repaired with archival tape to the inside to prevent the tears getting worse. The card covers and spine are very good. All contents present and pages good throughout. No writing or names to the book. Overall a good first edition in original jacket.
