    Scotland '74: A World Cup Story
    Richard Gordon - Paperback - Black & White Publishing
    For a small footballing nation, Scotland boasts a proud record of having qualified for the World Cup Finals on eight occasions. But this fantastic record is also tarred with the glorious failure of never having reached the latter stages of the tournament. 'Scotland '74' is a bitter-sweet celebration of the closest Scotland has ever got - so far at least - when a team of superstars managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the dying seconds.

    Sealed With A Kiss
    Rachael Lucas - Paperback - Pan Books
    Kate is dumped on her best friend's wedding day by the world's most boring boyfriend, Ian. She's mostly cross because he got in first - until she remembers she's now homeless as well as jobless. Rather than move back home to her ultra-bossy mother, Kate takes a job on the remote Scottish island of Auchenmor as an all-round Girl Friday. Her first day is pretty much a disaster: she falls over, smack bang at the feet of her grouchy new boss, Roddy, Laird of the Island. Unimpressed with her townie ways, he makes it clear she's got a lot to prove. Island life has no room for secrets, but prickly Roddy's keeping something to himself. When his demanding ex girlfriend appears back on the island, Kate's budding friendship with her new boss comes to an abrupt end. What is Fiona planning - and can she be stopped before it's too late?
  • Cover scan of Scottish Pewter 1600-1850
    Scottish Pewter 1600-1850
    P. Spencer Davies - Hardback - John Donald
    Pewter was in common use in most households, churches and places of commerce in Europe for hundreds of years before it gradually fell out of favour as more modern materials became available. Scottish pewter wares have a simple beauty arising from the plain functionality of form that was very much reflective of the protestant culture of Scotland at the time. This engaging book takes the reader through the development of the craft from its 16th-century beginnings, and making extensive use of otherwise inaccessible archival material, brings to life the role of the pewterers and their wares in the socio-economic history of the country.
