‘History of Rutherglen and East-Kilbride’ (1793)

This was an amazing thing to have arrived just prior to my birthday and Christmas, just there. I thought if I waited a wee  bit before posting, maybe the sender would come out the woodwork and let me know who my generous donor was. It wasn’t to be so. Weirdly, the other book I had this same experience with was the copy of M’Ure’s ‘View of the City of Glasgow’ (1830), I feel as it’s not been claimed I’ll upload it shortly too, and this book happens to be by a David Ure.

The pages are very clean and the book itself is well bound for its age. It’s also illustrated occasionally throughout, including a map of Torrance (G75), and who doesn’t love a map. I may also have to get it typed up and posted as soon as I’m able as I’ve already received 4 separate requests for the information contained to be made available. So, to whoever sent me this wee gem, I’m very grateful and so are other’s looking to make use of this information. Thank you so much.
