Lewis Grassic Gibbon on display in Centre for Research Collections

Posted on January 17, 2014 | in CRC, Exhibitions, Featured, Library | by

The new exhibition in the CRC Display Wall features books by leading Scottish novelist Lewis Grassic Gibbon.  Gibbon, whose real name was James Leslie Mitchell, is best known for his trilogy A Scots Quair, which was completed in 1934 with the publication of Grey Granite.    Sunset Song, the first book in the trilogy, is now established as a modern Scottish classic for its evocation of a vanished Scotland, as well as its original use of Scots language.

The display includes rare first editions and examples of books from Gibbon’s own private book collection which is kept together in Special Collections – as shown here.  They will be on show until the end of March 2014.
