Book-Lore, Vol. 6 free pdf Excerpt from Book-Lore, Vol. 6: A Magazine Devoted to Old Time Literature Ercildoune, the little Berwickshire village which sleeps on the banks of the Leader, has had more than its share of historic fame. From its quiet groves and lanes sprang St. Cuthbert, the glorious Apostle of Northumbria, and Thomas, surnamed the "Rhymer," another apostle of still greater celebrity, whose wanderings about and below the earth have been invested with the very essence of romance. It is but rarely that such a small place as Ercildoune can conjure up, within measurable distance of each other, two such spirits to bear witness to the decadence of modern cities, which can scarce produce a celebrity in several centuries- but perhaps it vomited forth its whole stock of immortality at once, leaving a future "Dead as the mouldering wall which Ivy proppedLeans on its bane." However this may be, Ercildoune is as much identified with the two celebrities above mentioned as Coldstream is with the energy and prowess of General Monk. The actors have set off the scene, strutted over the boards for a short space, and then the audience has departed, and the gas is turned down for the last time. In the silence which follows, Thomas the Rhymer somehow plays again to bare walls and empty seats, but his face is muffled, and his steps awake an echo from the grave. It is curious, but Thomas has been a spirit for nearly seven hundred years, and Ercildoune has produced not one celebrity to take his place- therefore we say that perhaps it vomited forth its whole stock of immortality at once. Larger places have been known to do the same. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
