Catalogue Note

Rare. ESTC records only two copies, in the Signet Library and Edinburgh University Library. A third "century" was published by Raban the following year. Wedderburn (1580-1646) was poet laureate of Aberdeen, where he lived all his life, and the author of a popular text of Latin grammar used throughout Scotland.
