Edinburgh: Printed and Published by Bishp & Sons, [nd. but ca 1936]. Quarto broadside (26.5 x 21 cm). Closely printed on recto and verso. A bit rumpled and creased at the extremities, but a very good copy. Item #WRCLIT83773
First edition. A rare, unsigned campaign broadside tied to Grieve's / MacDiarmid's campaign for election as Rector of the University of Edinburgh. While it is unlikely that the text is attributable to the poet, he most likely exerted considerable influence on its composition: "His election will do more to increase the spirit of freedom in Edinburgh than any event in the last half century." OCLC/Worldcat locates a single example, at the Nat'l Library of Scotland. OCLC / Worldcat 316514346.
