Although the Scots-English part of this is fairly limited, this was once
worth having for the English-Scots part, which for a long time was the only
one available.
Last year the Scottish National Dictionary Association published its long-
awaited "Concise English-Scots Dictionary", which is a far more comprehensive
work. Although it still has a number of imperfections, I'd recommend it
rather than Graham's work, good in its day as it was.
