1996 vintage copy of a very useful book. Former shop reference book

Customs have always played a central part in Scots' lives, and the customs of the Scots represent one of the most rich and enduring parts of their heritage. From birth to death, through work and the natural world, they are surrounded by lore and traditions, some of extraordinary antiquity. Sheila Livingstone's book is the first full study of these. She breaks her subject down into thematic chapters, each containing listings of associated customs within. The result is a fascinating compendium to skim through or delve into.
