About this Item

Gilt decoration front cover. Illustrations. Book measures 12 x 17. Slight chipping spine top and bottom with wear. Front and rear end papers split at spine top. Cloth separating from the boards around the edges 2 to 3 inches in. Some bowing due to size. 34 pages. From an introductory page: "According to the editor of the Border Minstrelsy, in whose publication this Ballad first appeared, it is founded upon an event in real life. The parties were John Scott of Tushielaw, and his brother-in-law, Walter Scott, third son of Robert Scott of Thirlstane. The unhappy event happened in the early part of the seventeenth century, and was fatal to the latter person. Both parties were gentlemen of the vale of Ettrick; but they appear to have chosen Yarrow for the scene of their rencontre, much upon the same principle as that which sometimes dictates, in modern cases of dueling.".
