The Perambulator in Edinburgh

£19.99

Product description

"In this book the author attempts to give a picture of the Edinburgh of today [1926] with the chiaroscuro of its past." Thus the Preface to this popular and comprehensive guide to Scotland's capital city, compiled by a Glaswegian Scot who clearly had a detailed and affectionate knowledge of Edinburgh

James Bone (1872-1962) was a journalist by profession, working first at the North British Daily Mail (until its closure in 1901), and then at the Manchester Guardian until his retirement in 1945, having been London editor since 1912.

The book is in very good condition for its age, bound in red cloth with black titling etc. to the front cover and spine, and with a rather worn D/J. There is minimal shelfwear, very light tanning to the endpapers, no foxing, and the binding is tight. The text is clean and bright throughout, and there are 16 lovely B/W illustrations by E.S. Lumsden. Long page edges are roughcut. Chapters are headed by decorative B/W panels, and each begins with a decorated inital capital letter. The name of a previous owner is pencilled on the fep. A lovely book, full of fascinating information.
