This is a very beaten-up copy of Blackie’s ‘A History of Scotland’ but it has good, condensed, information. It fits a lot into a wee publication. I started backwards with this one, having taken its maps for the Maps from Books section and the RSH Maps Gallery. I figured it would be useful to upload for those looking for quick information. It would also make a great wee learning-at-home tool during this time of quarantine, while the schools are shut. Don’t think this is only useful for those still undergoing their education, however. I’ve learned a few things from this book and I encourage folk with a desire to learn a wee bit of Scottish history to give it a look-in.
