The First Edition of the " Prophecies of the Brahan Seer,"
which appeared only eight months ago, went out of print in
a few months ; and though only a reprint from the Celtic
Magazine, without even a re-setting of the types, and contain-
ing many blemishes of style and arrangement, it
was received by the Press and the public in a manner for
which I am glad so soon to have this agreeable opportunity
pf expressing my gratitude. This Edition is considerably
enlarged ; and I venture to hope it will be found in all respects
superior to tlie first. I acknowledge with pleasure the fact
that the public and the trade have already accepted it, to a
great extent on trust, by subscribing for it extensively in
advance. l^o doubt this is largely due to the confidence
placed, by a large number of such as take an interest in
Celtic matters, in my friend the Rev. Alexander M'Gregor,
M.A., who has written the main part of the Appendix on
the " Superstition of the Highlanders," published herewith,
specially for this Edition — a small portion only being a re-cast
of his articles on the same subject which recently appeared
in the Celtic Magazine.
