Come along to a special one-day-only display of Aberdeen Breviary, one of the first ever works to be printed in Scotland, at the National Library of Scotland at Kelvin Hall!
About Aberdeen Breviary
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Our copy of the Aberdeen Breviary, first printed in 1509-10, will be shown in Glasgow on Saturday 30 November (St Andrew’s Day). This will be the first time it has returned to Glasgow since it was used by Nicholas Ferguson and other local clergy at St Mungo’s Cathedral in the early 1500s. Although the book gets its name from Aberdeen, the city where it was compiled, it was created as the first Scotland-wide service book.
More than 500 years later, people will have the opportunity to see these rare volumes, which include the first mention of St Andrew in print in Scotland. Visitors to the National Library at Kelvin Hall will be able to see pages from the Aberdeen Breviary and enjoy family-friendly activities which include some intricate colouring-in and an animation station. As Kelvin Hall is the home of our Moving Image Collections, there will also be interactive touch screens to view a range of films of Scotland – from sport and industry, to ballet and music hall.
The Aberdeen Breviary display is open from 10am–4pm on Saturday 30 November at the National Library of Scotland, Kelvin Hall, 1445 Argyle Street, Glasgow G3 8AW. Admission is free.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Aberdeen Breviary are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
