Books I bought on holiday

When holidaying not so far from a place described as Scotland's National Book Town, it would be a stronger soul than I who could refrain from smiling winningly and asking "May we...?"

We did. And I bought books. Many Several books. To wit:

Cabell, James Branch Figures of Earth
Cabell, James Branch Jurgen
Cabell, James Branch The Silver Stallion
Chesterton, G. K. The Flying Inn
Davis, Lindsay Scandal Takes a Holiday
Frazer, G. Adonis Attis Osiris: Studies in the history of Oriental Religion
George, Andrew (tr) The Epic of Gilgamesh
Highfield, Roger The Science of Harry Potter
Jennings, Paul (ed) The Book of Nonsense
Knox, Ronald In Three Tongues
Lancaster, Osbert Temporary Diversions
Liddell, Henry George and Scott, Robert A Greek-English Lexicon
Mabey, Richard Flora Britannica
McCall Smith, Alexander Tears of the Giraffe
O'Donnell, Elliott Scottish Ghost Stories
Pain, Barry The Octave of Claudius
Park, Ruth The Muddle-headded Wombat Stays at Home
Priestley, J. B. English Humour

I was particularly pleased by getting another Muddle-headed Wombat book and a full Liddell and Scott. I've had the abridged L&S ever since I was at school, but I've always wanted the full one. It was rather a snip, too: £12.50 for a good-condition copy of the 8th edition.
