Lowland Legends, chiefly relating to the Buchan District. Edited by

H. G. Reid. (W. P. Nimmo.)—A tiny but valuable addition to legendary lore. The tale of the courtship and marriage of the Earl of Buchan especially deserves preservation, and Mr. Reid has done wisely is abstaining from dressing his legends up in modern literary haberdashery. They have thus a genuine smack about them which gives trifles of this. sort their value to the epicure.
