‘Scotland Illustrated’ (1845)

I present the fourth of the four books donated by Julie & Hilton and I really feel as though I left the best for last. This is a beautiful book, just gorgeous. Really tight binding and nice clean pictures throughout. It sports 80 views from around the country engraved from drawings by Scottish artists. Very excited about getting this one uploaded for your perusal.
