Currently, I have not listed all works that only partially deal with Scotland (in a chapter or in passing). I may add these in the future. Please contact me if you would like to make the case for inclusion of a particular work.
This list was compiled using Roger Lancelyn Green’s Andrew Lang: A Critical Biography, Eleanor De Selms Langstaff’s Andrew Lang, the Andrew Lang listings in Wikipedia, and searches of Internet Archive. WorldCat was consulted when an Internet Archive scan did not exist; however, I did not check WorldCat against every entry (yet). If you are working with a particular text and are unsure of the publication date from other sources, I do recommend that you double-check WorldCat.
Please do contact me if you have any corrections or additions.
