The moon gazed on my midnight labours, while, with unrelaxed and breathless eagerness, I pursued nature to her hiding-places.

Mary Shelley

And if in Edinburgh look to the skies:

Witches over Edinburgh

Witches over Edinburgh (1923).

Endpiece from Dramatisations of History: The Masque of Ancient Learning and Its Many Meanings by Patrick Geddes, Edinburgh: Patrick Geddes and Colleagues, (1923).
