‘Pictorial History of Scotland’ (1859)

This is the first of a couple of anonymous donations to Random Scottish History. I really looking forward to getting the information and illustrations in these two volumes out as soon as possible. They are super weighty tomes with 808 & 908 pages respectively (without including the index) and tiny print so, as it would take me some amount of time to transfer its contents here in full, maybe just scans of all the pictures with any accompanying information might be both more interesting for you and a wee bit easier on me.
