Building Stones of Edinburgh

£9.99

Product description

Edinburgh, 'Grey Athens of the North', owes much of its splendour to the quality of the sandstone from which most of its finest buildings are constructed. The Building Stones of Edinburgh focuses on the geological characteristics of these sandstones which were extracted from local quarries and includes within its pages examples of many of the fine buildings which have made Edinburgh famous.

The majority of the readership may be professional geologists, amateur geologists, undergraduate students, architects and civil engineers.

Although text block edges are somewhat foxed and partially toned, all text, b/w figures, maps, diagrams and photographic colour plates are clear and appealing.
