MATHESON COLLECTION

A collection of mainly philological works, in Celtic and some non-Celtic languages, purchased from the estate of Professor Angus Matheson (1912-62), first Professor of Celtic in the University of Glasgow. It was a ‘working’ collection, and many of the volumes are extensively annotated. The original purchase of 159 volumes was augmented in 1988 by the addition of 15 works on Highland genealogy, history and poetry from the library of Angus Matheson’s brother, William Matheson, formerly Reader in the Department of Celtic in the University of Edinburgh.

Shelfmark: Mat.
