In addition to the book sources below, researchers with an interest in Andrew Lang and history may also wish to explore some of Lang’s periodical writings, particularly those in Blackwood’s and The Cornhill.
- Oxford. Brief historical & descriptive notes (Seeley and Co., 1879). [The Internet Archive scan is of the 1902 seventh edition.]
- St. Andrews (Longmans, Green, 1893). As Eleanor De Selms Langstaff notes in her biography of Lang, Lang wrote this book using “secondary sources and failed to verify them. The result was a work riddled with embarrassing inaccuracies” (74). Langstaff also points out that, in the end, the experience helped Lang as a revisionist historian: “Fresh examinations of the documents in their earliest forms became the keystone of Lang’s historical technique after painfully learning his lesson from his university history, St Andrews” (74).
