The volume now offered to the public contains a more extensive collection of Epitaphs and Inscriptions, than any other work of the same kind relating to Scotland.

Monteith's collection now reprinted in this volume, had become so scarce, that few persons had the opportunity of consulting it, and those who had access to the book, could not easily avail themselves of its contents from the want of an index.

Of the additions to that collection given in this volume, a great many are original, and now printed for the first time. Several literary gentlemen have favoured the publisher with materials for this publicationcation; but above all he is indebted to Mr. William Dobie, of Beith, who has formed a curious collection of Epitaphs in MS. These were collected by him both in this country and on the continent, and gleaned, for tlie most part in such places as had been least explored by former collectors. The most liberal use of this valuable collection was granted to the publisher, and he trusts that the value of this volume is greatly enhanced by the free use made of the materials so fortunately obtained. Most of the Epitaphs con- tributed by Mr. Dobie, are original; others, are more accurate copies of some remarkable inscriptions which were formerly published. The publisher is also in-debted to Mr. John Dunn, of Paisley, for accurate copies of some inscriptions on the curious old stones in the Abbey burying ground.

As a collection of this kind is of little use as a book of reference without an index ; considerable pains have been taken in compiling one for this volume, and if not complete, it will at least be found copious, as it contains more than eight hundred names.
