‘Scottish National Memorials’ (1890)

[Scanned Images Contents]

Friend and RSH Contributor Tam McCann had alerted me to this book’s existence and I’ve just had a copy sent through from Leith. It’s quite the tome. Wonderfully illustrated throughout. It’s very like the Memorial Catalogue for the 1894 Glasgow Exhibition but seems to be far more detailed and with far more illustrations, even though it’s been limited to “a Record of the Historical and Archæological Collection in the Bishop’s Castle, Glasgow, 1888.” I think I want to get started on this one next as I think it’s fairly valuable for the information it contains.
