Marked 'Mackinnon A6' and noted thus in previous historical records. This appears to be a draft paper, written by Mackinnon himself, discussing Gaelic versions of the classical epic poems. However, the appears to be no Gaelic whatsoever in this notebook.
List of 17 titles (partial cites only) in Latin and French, in an unnamed repository, concerning history, classical literature, and philosophical commentary, such as the "Dictionaire Critique de M. Bail".
This is an English translation of the Latin poem 'Thebaid', written by the Latin poet, Statius. There is no title, bt previous historical records indicate that this may have been the text used by Mackinnon, who had the work published in 'Celtic Review'. This is likely to be an English translation of the Gaelic manuscript 72.1.8,ff.1-28, although the poem survives and translations of it survive in other manuscripts.
