Notes

  • Scope and Contents

    The majority of the works are unpublished, and those which are published present considerable divergences. All the plays were written for the stage, and in some cases the names of the actors appear in the list of dramatis personae. Adv.MS.5.1.16, (i) and (ii) seem to be unconnected with the remainder of the collection.

  • Immediate Source of Acquisition

    Presented, 1925, by the Faculty of Advocates to the nation on the foundation of the National Library of Scotland.
