Excerpt from Donald Mleods Gloomy Memories in the Highlands of Scotland: Versus Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowes Sunny Memories in (England), A Foreign Land, or a Faithful Picture of the Extirpation of the Celtic Race From the Highlands of ScotlandInMoreExcerpt from Donald Mleods Gloomy Memories in the Highlands of Scotland: Versus Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowes Sunny Memories in (England), A Foreign Land, or a Faithful Picture of the Extirpation of the Celtic Race From the Highlands of ScotlandIn publishing a new edition of Donald Macleods Gloomy Memories it may be interesting to submit a few facts regarding previous editions. The first edition, printed for the author at the Chronicle Office, Edinburgh, in 1841, consisted of a reprint of a number of letters addressed to the Edinburgh Weekly Chronicle. A second edition was published in Greenock in 1856, while a third edition, enlarged and improved, was published in Toronto, Canada, in 1857.Despite the fact that three editions were published, the work was within recent years all but impossible to procure. The idea of publishing the present edition, which is a reprint of that published in Canada, is due to Mr. John Campbell, a patriotic Mull man resident in Greenock, who, impressed with the educative value of the Gloomy Memories, set about collecting subscriptions with the view of having an edition published at a price that would place the work within the reach of all. To his efforts therefore, conjoined with the patriotism of a number of Celts and others interested in the Highlands, the public are indebted for the present re-issue of the Gloomy Memories.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
