‘A History of the Scottish People’ (1894)

The Maps of early Scottish territories got quite the look-in when posted to the site about a week ago. At that point I only had volume 1 of this set, from which the maps came, but went to try and find an affordable set. Here they are. I love the choice of binding. The books definitely stand out on their shelf. The choice of red-edging for the pages too seems like a bold choice.

I’ll be uploading these some time in the near future, I think, as they seem like, with ‘A History of Scotland‘ (1881) they might prove useful to those home-schooling during the rise and fall of this present pandemic. These have full page illustrations occasionally throughout to look forward to as well.
