Corehouse Collection

This small collection of 41 volumes belonged to George Cranstoun, Lord Corehouse, and was donated by his descendant Major Gordon in 1951. Lord Corehouse became Dean of Faculty in 1823, but in 1829 he was struck by paralysis and retired from official duties. He was a lifelong friend of Sir Walter Scott. The collection of mainly 18th century law works is notable for its bindings.
