Stand fast, Craig-Royston! A novel by William Black( Book )

27 editions published between 1890 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Old Mr. Bethune imagines himself the descendant of an ancient Scotch family, whose motto for centuries has been "Stand Fast, Craig-Royston." He is engaged in getting up a work on Scotch ballad poetry, and imagines he has squandered a fortune. He feels the world owes him a living, and, greatly to his grand-daughter Maisie's mortification, he accepts favors from all sides. The plot enables Black to introduce quotations from Scotch literature with artistic effect. The romantic interest is slight but tender and pretty. The descriptions of Scotch scenery, manners and customs are elaborated with exquisite care. --Literary News, Feb. 1891
