From 'The Bruce' to 'Take the High Road' ...

Our latest quarterly list of principal additions to our collections is now online. Covering February to April this year, the list is a small selection of printed books, manuscripts and maps which reached us through the legal deposit privilege or via the Voluntary Code for the Deposit of Non-Print Publications.

Included are rare printed editions of 17th century poems — such as John Barbour's epic poem about Robert the Bruce — a humorous print from 1861 showing artillery volunteers on duty at Edinburgh Castle, papers from Dame Muriel Spark, and scripts from 10 years of the Scottish TV series, 'Take the High Road'.
