‘Gazetteer of Scotland’ (1847)

I’m surprised this publication hasn’t made it into any site posts yet. It’s helped me out a lot in the past. These volumes gives an alphabetically listed city-by-city, town-by-town, account of Scotland. I’ve almost done a couple of projects based around the information in these books but other, more pressing, projects were taken on instead. There’s an excellent Map of Scotland in volume one but I’ll be waiting a wee bit before attempting to scan it in and jigsaw it together again. We have an A3 scanner here at RSH HQ but this map is bigger than that, and with about half on one edge being attached to, what is a fairly large and weighty, book, it makes it a strategically annoying thing to try. It’ll happen. My hand scanner is in our place of employment, which is off-limits at the moment due to a plague of almost historical proportions passing across the world, or I’d have tried it that way. I’ll update you.
