A novel about religious fanaticism in Scotland and the Covenanters of the 17th century, and although not one of his better known works, Ringan Gilfaize is generally considered by Galt scholars and enthusiasts to be one of his best novels - even earning the moniker from some of a "neglected masterpiece." ¶ Ownership stamp of Marmaduke Burton Dawnay on the verso of each title-page; interesting later red square Asian ownership mark on the front free endpapers.
