Six Engravings in Illustration of Rob Roy (1868)

This is the largest publication in the collection. It’s an A3-sized collection of 6 engravings inspired by the life and exploits of Rob Roy published just over a century after his death. It’s one of a collection of similar books published “for the Members of The Royal Association for the Promotion of Fine Arts in Scotland.” I didn’t feel scanning it in halves and jigsawing the images together on the A4 scanner we had would do the book justice and so have waited until now to present it to you here. It’s not in the best of condition and could do with being rebound at a later date.
