Summary:

A New Edition of Toland's History Of The Druids, with an Abstract of his Life and Writings. Apparently, the author spent a year at Oxford after leaving Edinburgh studying manuscripts in his native tongue with a view to compiling a Gaelic dictionary. Although this didn't materialise, he wrote The History of the Druids as a result of these studies, which demonstrates his grasp of Gaelic and his understanding of its origins, lore and traditions.
