The first-ever bibliography of Scottish Latin authors in print
The work of the Latin writers of Scotland has suffered a neglect which its variety, copiousness, and intrinsic interest do not deserve. Their importance, and the importance of Latin as a literary language, is beginning to be recognized by scholars. Researchers from the universities of Glasgow and St. Andrews have now prepared the first-ever bibliography of Scottish Latin in print - unique both in its focus on the many works written in Latin and in the way in which Scottish writers are specifically targeted. Covering the years c. 1480-1700, this new reference tool carefully catalogues the work of some 500 writers, in both prose and verse. Thousands of works are named in a clear and original format, with their titles not so truncated as to be obscure (as sometimes happens in English ‘short-title' catalogues). The editors take advantage of recent research, and many poetic works hitherto unknown or ignored are referenced. This ground-breaking reference work will be essential not only for those who study the progress of humanism and the history and literature of early modern Scotland, but also for those engaged in various kinds of research into the events and ideas of continental Europe, with which Scotland was closely linked in many ways.

This is a book which should be on the shelves of all major learned libraries and is likely to be an invaluable resource to future generations of scholars. May their numbers grow.

Robert Crawford described Latin as Scotland's literary 'lost continent'. With this timely and extensive addition to the field, students and scholars of Scotland's rich Latinate history now possess a guide to aid them in exploring and reclaiming this fertile terrain.
