This is a great wee Mauchline Ware edition of Sir Walter Scott’s epic poem ‘Marmion: A Tale of Flodden Field’ I obtained a few years ago. I’ve only read maybe a third of it so far. The text is tiny and could be hard on the eyes depending on light. It’s inscribed “Abbotsford, Aug 1. 1890”, but I don’t know if that means it belonged to someone living on Scott’s former estate. I’m not able to make out the signature on the left hand page opposite the title page. For more information on Mauchline Ware see the introduction to the Album. The image on the front cover is very similar to one of the photos in the same Album that shows Abbotsford with a boatman to the foreground in the river.
