The Scottish Gallovidian Encyclopaedia

By John MacTaggart

Published by Clunie Press, Perthshire, 1981. A New Edition. Hardback with dust jacket, 504 pages,

MacTaggart was one of the great collectors of Galloway words and folklore, which he gathered together in this work, published in 1824. The first edition contained a libel on a local girl from the kirkcudbright area, and he was forced to destroy copies, under threat of legal action; there was a second printing in 1876 of 250 copies; now both very scarce.

CONDITION

A very good clean copy. Dust jacket good with no tears. Boards and spine very good. All contents present and pages very clean throughout. No writing or names. Very good.
