‘Scots Lore’ (1895)

I love this book so much. I’ve read it through 3 times and referred to it more times than I could guess at. It’s full of such random information that it’s perfect for Random Scottish History’s first post. Unfortunately it pretty quickly became a working copy and will need a wee repair from my friends over at Cameron Bookbinders, Glasgow, but it’s one I’ll never part with.
