The Days of Auld Lang Syne, Ian MacLaren (Rev. John Watson, November 1850 – May 1907), Dodd, Mead & Company, 1895. 5 ¼ x 8, 1lb 2oz, 366p, 1895 publishers date and 1895 copyright date. Assumed First edition, first print, although not stated.

This title is a hard cover bound in green cloth with gold gilt lettering surrounded by a dark green clover pattern. The spine has a bit of darkening due to light exposure and the pastedown is tearing a bit at the hinge on the front cover. The book is tight, solid and square with light browning on the preliminary pages. It’s a nice copy for a collection. Inscription on flypage “For my darling Grandpa, From your devoted Annie. Christmas 1896”

This title is Ian MacLaren’s second book of stories about rural Scottish life. He also wrote religious material under his real name. MacLaren from the Kailyard school in Great Britain, was a highly accomplished author and theologian who unfortunately died while traveling in the U.S. at 56.

The quotation

“Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle”

is correctly attributed to MacLaren and not Plato as sources have thought. The quote is also very true unless you just don’t care that everyone is fighting a hard battle!

Please examine the pictures carefully, I try to photograph all, if any flaws on an item so you don't have any surprises when your item arrives.
