Notes

A large compendium of Argyll traditions and folk belief, edited by Lord Archibald Campbell (1846-1913) 2nd son of the 8th Duke of Argyll, and featuring contributions from Alexander Carmichael, 15 years before the publication of his own Carmina Gadelica. Copies are numbered on the half-title from an unspecified total, but we have not traced another copy numbered higher than 420, making a limitation of 500 copies or fewer likely.
