The oldest book in Scotland is going on public display for the first time in its history.
The Celtic Psalter dates from the 11th Century and contains hand-written psalms in Latin, with Celtic and Pictish illustrations.
It has been kept under lock and key at the University of Edinburgh and has been available to only a few scholars.
But for the next three months the public will have the chance to view the book at the university's newly refurbished library.
Also on display is the finest surviving copy of Scotland's first substantial printed book, the Aberdeen Breviary which dates back to 1509.
There is also a copy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet published during the playwright's lifetime.
The exhibition opens on Friday and lasts until 14th March.

In 1804 the first weekly newspaper appeared in Wales when The Cambrian was published in Swansea.
Swansea was an ideal centre for such a venture. It was developing into a busy commercial and industrial town with sea and land communication facilities for distributing the newspaper. The Cambrian circulation was restricted to the small minority in the principal towns of south Wales who were able to read English. The venture proved successful and was soon followed by other weeklies such as The North Wales gazette, established in Bangor in 1808, and The Carmarthen journal, established in Carmarthen in 1810.
