The Isle of Foula


This is a new edition of a book originally published in 1938. The author bought Foula over a century ago but spent much of his working life lecturing in the United States. The book is posthumous, being produced by the Professor’s widow Marion from his unpublished papers. The way in which the book came into being makes it difficult to classify. It is a compendium of papers that share in common a relationship to Foula but were not originally written with that object in mind. The book is a memorial to the man and his love of Foula, but it also tells the island’s story
