Bookshelf

Bookshelf label

George Mackay Brown’s literary column “Bookshelf” appeared frequently in the Orkney Herald from 1945 to 1952. (Because of his absence from Orkney while he was studying at Newbattle Abbey, there were no columns during 1951 and only two during 1952.) The very earliest columns in 1945 were signed with his name; thereafter the authorship was indicated by his initials only. The column usually had a subtitle (which I have recorded). 

Below is a list of links to the columns (grouped by years).
