Andrew Lang, John Knox, and Scottish Presbyterianism

by Dickinson, William Croft

Condition: Very Good


Edinburgh: Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd., 1952. 32 pp. A sticker shadow, some discoloration near edge of wraps, a few light pencil marks in text, else fine. Being the Andrew Lang Lecture delivered before the University of St. Andrews, 14 November 1951. ''Carlyle described [Knox] as'the one Scotchman to whom, of all others, his country and the world owe a debt'l while, even within the last few years, an American historian has recorded his opinion that John Knox was 'possibly the most important man in Scottish history', certainly a man to be 'reckoned great by any estimate based upon influence'. Such was--as it still is--the tradition which Andrew Lang encountered when he came to write the second volume of his History of Scotland; and his endeavor to 'get behind' that tradition (to use his own words) led one ardent advocate of Knox to review Lang's volume under the title 'Knox in the Hands of the Philistines'.''. Wraps. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
