On August 8th 1503 King James IV, the King of Scotland, married Margaret Tudor; the marriage was known as the Union of the Thistle and the Rose. This marriage set the stage for the union of England and Scotland under one crown nearly 100 years later.
In honor of the 508th anniversary of this historic event today we are giving away books on Scottish studies published by Edinburgh University Press!

Books are “as is”, and might be missing jackets or have slight damage to cover or pages, but we tried not to include any with damage that would make them unreadable. Books can only be shipped to a U.S. or Canadian address, no P.O. boxes. The contest is not open to employees of Columbia University Press, Edinburgh University Press, Perseus Distribution, or their families.
