The old Library of Edinburgh University

The old Library was certainly a large and handsome
room, wherein were shown a skull, said to be
that of George Buchanan; the original Bohemian
protest against the Council of Constance for burning
John Huss and Jerome of Prague, dated 1417,
with 105 seals attached to it; the original marriage
contract of Queen Mary with the Dauphin; many
coins, medals, and portraits, which were afterwards
preserved in the new university.
