D'Arcy, Julian:  
Scottish Skalds and Sagamen : Old Norse Influence on Modern Scottish Literature

Publisher: East Linton, Tuckwell Press, 1996. (1st Edition).
311pp. "The book illustrates how the Viking invasions and settlements have made a lasting impact on the history, languages and cultures of Scotland and how from the very beginning, Scotsmen made a distinct and important contribution to the dissemination of Old Norse culture in Britain and played a significant role in the creation of the notion of a Norse ethos. More importantly, the book illustrates in detail how a consciousness of this Norse heritage has influenced nine major Scottish writers of this century : Hugh MacDiarmid, Lewis Grassic Gibbon, Neil Gunn, John Buchan, Naomi Mitchison, David Lindsay, Eric Linklater, Edwin Muir and George Mackay Brown, throwing new light on aspects of Scottish identity and literary trends, especially in the period of the Scottish Rennaissance 1920-1950." This title has gone the way of so many well researched books, and is now out-of-print - in this instance due to a recent takeover of the publishers : the copies offered come from the publishers previously uncirculated store stock. Fine cond trade paperback. 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches

The Master of Ballantrae with an Introduction by G. B. Stern and with color lithographs by Lynd Ward.

Publisher: NY, Heritage Press [c1965].
Story of the conflict of two brothers and the increasing hatred between them, of which the author says, 'The narration, put in the mouth of the land steward, would supply, as if by the way and accidentally, a certain subdued element of comedy, much to be desired, and scarce otherwise, except by violence, to be introduced. Besides which, the device enabled me to view my heroine from the outside, which was doubly desirable... because I should be thus enabled to pass over without realization an ugly and delicate business-- the Master's courtship of his brother's wife.' 303 p.; navy-blue linen stamped in silver; grey cardboard slipcase a bit scuffed, the book fine.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Wood Engravings by Barry Moser. Foreword by Joyce Carol Oates.

Publisher: Lincoln, Nebraska UP [1990].
[xviii], 158, [4] p., illus. "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a landmark in psychological fiction, predating a long line of books and movies about doubles, as well as the work of Freud. ...Like that other household name, Frankenstein, Jekyll-Hyde personifies science gone amuck, but Stevenson's creation perhaps cuts deeper in showing the psychic and moral costs of humanity's quest for forbidden knowledge. This special edition, based on the original one published in 1886, features a dozen wood engravings by Barry Moser... whose work was described as 'never less than dazzling' by John Ashbery in Newsweek."
