Product description

Memorials of Edinburgh in the Olden Time

2 volumes

Sir Daniel Wilson

Adam & Charles Black, Edinburgh & London, 1891: 2nd edition.

“A new edition with extensive alterations and additions, and with fresh illustrations from the author’s drawings.”

Hardbacks; 200 x 260 mm; brown boards with titles in gold on spines and front covers; volume I: xxii & 282 pages, top edge gilt, plus fold out map bird’s eye view of Edinburgh in 1647; volume II: xiv & 316 pages, top edge gilt; illustrations within text and 41 plates with tissue guards. No dust jackets.

The books are in good condition. The bindings are sound. Minor wear to the covers. Page end tanning, and tanning front and back matter.

“Born in Edinburgh, Daniel Wilson (1816 - 1892) initially pursued an artistic career and spent time in Turner's studio. However, in 1846 he became a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and devoted the rest of his life to archaeology, anthropology and university administration. He was active in the Society's attempts to save historic buildings in Edinburgh, and the city's built environment was the subject of this two-volume work, which is illustrated with engravings after his own drawings. In Volume 1, Wilson begins by tracing the city's history from earliest times. The latter part of the volume and Volume 2 cover local antiquities and traditions, with each chapter looking at a different area of the Old Town. Leith, the New Town, and ecclesiastical buildings are then discussed."
