Scarce copy of The Witness’s response to Macaulay’s treatment of Scotland in his history. Consists of four articles from The Witness (which the geologist and writer Hugh Miller edited) reprinted. pp52 including half title, contents, prefatory note (noting this is the second edition with an additional article). Bound in brown boards with brown leather spine and gilt titles. No copies listed for sale elsewhere. There is some doubt as to the authorship (as to whether Miller himself wrote the essays). Name effaced from half title, number, possibly a class mark in ink, discernible to the verso of the half title, otherwise VG. Rare
