"Based on the success of this first book, Renny began working on his second book, published in 1879, called, “Rambles Through The Land of Burns”. This book was based on the life and times of Robert Burns primarily, with snippets of the struggles of the Covenanters, the battles of William Wallace and Robert d’Bruce, and other notable occurrences before and during Burns’ lifetime. The book covers Burns’ birth, youth, life as a poet, his loves, and inspirations, and many of the fairs and rituals of the kirks and pagans throughout Scottish history and their effect on the social norms of the day. In addition, it covers how everything “Burns” became what it is today – the tourist stops. It becomes a social commentary that is as true today as it was incredible after Burns’ death. This book is filled with Burns poetry and with the poetry of others. It should appeal to both the Mason and the average reader. ". Very Good .

"It was Clive Bell who introduced Virginia Woolf's work in America and his memoir of her is an affectionate evocation that reveals the nature of a fascinating woman, a nature that held a special magic for all of her friends." "Arthur Clive Heward Bell (16 September 1881 – 18 September 1964) was an English art critic, associated with formalism and the Bloomsbury Group. Bell died, aged 83, in London...According to historian Stanley Rosenbaum, "Bell may, indeed, be the least liked member of Bloomsbury. Bell has been found wanting by biographers and critics of the Group – as a husband, a father, and especially a brother-in-law. It is undeniable that he was a wealthy snob, hedonist, and womaniser, a racist and an anti-Semite (but not a homophobe) , who changed from a liberal socialist and pacifist into a reactionary appeaser. Bell's reputation has led to his being underestimated in the history of Bloomsbury." ". Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket .
