Abstract

The Hogg Collection contains about 100 volumes; some manuscript material, mainly letters; and ephemera. The collection includes Hogg’s own publications, other books owned by Hogg (with some proprietorial inscriptions), and acquisitions made by the Special Collections Librarian. This book, by Hogg’s great-great-grandson, Bruce Gilkison, recounts his re-creation of Hogg’s Highland travels in the early 1800s. In recent years, the life and works of James Hogg have experienced a resurgence of interest, and Special Collections is lucky enough to have some unique items associated with the Ettrick Shepherd.
