The National Library of Scotland is one of the world's great research libraries, with rich holdings of older material. In Rax Me That Buik - the title is the library's motto, 'Hand me that book' - are to be found some of its most important treasures, especially those which shed light on Scotland's history, ranging from letters, telegrams, pencil drawings and printed ephemera to glorious illuminated manuscripts and fine bindings such as Napoleon's copy of Ossian.
