To have noticed all the Greek and Latin works which treat of the Druids, or of the Celtic language, customs, and antiquities, would have swelled this catalogue beyond the limits prescribed. Although various works of foreign, Scottish, and Irish Writers have been noticed, besides those quoted in the present publication, yet, for the reasons we have now assigned, many have been omitted. The Greek and Latin authors, whose works have not been described in the preceding Notices, but who have been occasionally referred to as authorities in the Supplemental Essay, are, Archilochus, Tyrtasus, Xenophon, Plautus, Diodorus Siculus, Strabo, Csesar, Pliny, Plutarch, Tacitus, Mela, Lucan, Justin, Pausanias, Porphyrius, Marcellinus, Claudianus, and Stephanus Byzantinus.

* + Ais-Eiridh na Sean chanoin Albannaich. A collection of Gaelic Poems, by Alexander M‘Donald. Edinb. 1751, in 12mo. This collection contains several panegyrical and satirical songs. As a poet he is surpased by few of the modern Gael.

to which rules are annexed for reading the Gaelic, by Mr. Stuart.

+ The Holy Bible, translated into Gaelic by the Rev. Dr. Stuart, Minister of Luss, and others. This, with the translation of the New Testament, may be considered the standard of the Gaelic language^ both as to style and orthography.

A Collection of Poems, by Duncan Mac-Intyre of Glenurchy, Argyllshire, 1768, 8vo. Mac-Iutyre, though an illiterate man, holds place among the first of modern Bards ; his poem on the Summer is beautiful and energetic, equal to any thing in Thomson’s Seasons;

his panegyric on Beindouran (a hill above Glenurchy) excels every THE 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. 563 thing of the kind ; his Mam-Lorn, or Coire cheathaich and Coire gorm au fhasaich, are admired by every Celtic scholar who takes pleasure to see nature painted in the liveliest colours. His Love Songs are pure yet full of fire. In measure and purity of diction he is always correct and successful.

Poems and Hymns, both religious and moral, allowed to be equal to any in the Gaelic language for the harmony of the versification, especially the poem on the Sufferings of Christ; on the Day of Judgment ; the Address to a Human Skull taken up in a Church-yard;

and a Warning to Old Age, &c. by Dug. Buchanan, schoolmaster in Ranoch, Perthshire, 1770, 8vo.

A Collection of the Works of the Gaelic Bards, both ancient and modern, by Ronald Macdonald, son of Alexander the Poet. This collection is posessed of much merit, but the orthography is in soma respects defective.

London, 1780, in 2 vols. 4to, Poems by Peter Stuart, schoolmaster at Lochaird. Monteith, 1783, 8vo.

A Congratulatory Poem on the Restoration of the Forfeited Estates, by Donald M{Kenzie of Inverary.

t A Collection of ancient and modern Gaelic Poems and Songs, transmitted from Gentlemen in the Highlands to John Gillies of Perth, 1786, 8vo; intitled, u Shean Dain agus ora'n Ghaidhealich,” &c.

James McPherson, the translator of Ossian, lived many years in the family of McPherson of Strathmasie, in Badenoch, who was an emi.


nent Celtic antiquary, an excellent scholar, and a poet of considerable talents.

D. Minister of Cambelton, 1787, 8vo, A Collection of Songs, humourous, panegyrical, and satirical, by Kenneth Mackenzie, of Inverness. Many of these songs are allowed to have merit; the idiom of the language is pretty well preserved throughout the whole, though some of them have the appearance of being composed without much attention or study. 1792, 8vo.
