A good selection of new Scottish material was received by the National Library of Scotland this week, including a new printing of the 35 volume Complete works of Robert Louis Stevenson, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing Classical Texts.
A new edited collection of essays about James Hogg was also received this week. James Hogg and the literary marketplace : Scottish romanticism and the working-class author, edited by Sharon Alker and Holly Faith Nelson aims to examine the character and literary range of Hogg, his place within nineteenth-century Scottish literature and the broader ‘literary marketplace’.
Also new in this week was Part-truths : poems by 24 year old Scottish poet Michael Pedersen and published by Koo Press. This is the first poetry pamphlet produced by Michael, who is currently travelling and teaching in Cambodia.
Perennial Christmas favourites The Broons are back! This week we received The Broons and Oor Wullie : the glory years 1956-1969, featuring all the best Broons and Oor Wullie strips from that era.
