10 Scottish Books That Changed the World’ exhibition at the Wigtown Book Festival 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — fhartree @ 9:27 am

The ’10 Scottish Books That Changed the World’ exhibition created by the Scottish Centre for the Book at Edinburgh Napier University is currently on display at the Wigtown Book Festival. The exhibition covers the publishing history of ten key books produced in Scotland from Adam Smith’s ‘Wealth of Nations’ to the ‘Rules of Golf’ produced by the Royal and Ancient in St Andrews. Professor Alistair McCleery, Director of the Scottish Centre for the Book said: “It was a difficult choice and many will dispute our ten. It’s a chance to fly the saltire and boast about the impact made by this small nation’s past and present publishing industry.” The exhibition was previously displayed at Highland Homecoming in Inverness and the Lennoxlove Book Festival. It will be the central display at Dunedin Public Library in New Zealand during Scottish Week there in November. Copies of the exhibition booklet are available from the Scottish Centre for the Book.
