W. M. Metcalfe's translations of the principal Lives from Pinkerton's Vitae Antiquae Sanctorum Scotiae has been reprinted in facsimile in two paperback volumes, to be sold separately. Only 220 copies of the original were printed in 1895, so that the present publication makes a rare item readily available. Metcalfe's translations had but a brief introduction, and they are specially useful for those wishing to read these Lives without any lengthy, academic preamble. Part 1: Introduction, the Life of Ninian by Ailred of Rievaux, and two Lives of Columba by Cuimine the Fair, and Adamnan.
