Product description

The Scottish Gift Book (Girl Guides Association, c.1948) - legends, folk songs etc.
 
This original late 1940s vintage volume comprises a collection of legends, folk songs and country dances (with piano arrangements) and recipes from Scotland, plus a few other items including a musical setting by Edmund Rubbra of the old Gaelic "Rune of Hospitality".
 
Although it shows various assorted signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make an interesting addition to a collection of Girl Guiding or Scottish memorabilia.
