Scottish Poetry Collection

A collection of nearly 1000 books of mainly 20th century Scottish poetry. The collection is particularly strong in the works of Ian Hamilton Finlay and Edwin Morgan, and occasional additions are made in these areas. Many of the items are ephemeral or from small print-runs.
