First Printed Books Bought By National Library of Scotland

The National Library of Scotland has just acquired two of the first books ever printed in Scotland. Printed in 1509, the Aberdeen Breviary provides services to be carried out in Scottish churches. The books are therefore of tremendous historical significance not just in terms of literature but also as historical documents of the religious and social history of Scotland.
