Black's Picturesque Tourist of Scotland with Traveling Map, 1859 (14th Edition), by Adam and Charles Black — VERY RARE
Publisher: Adam and Charles Black, Edinburgh (1859)
Very rare 1859 soft cover edition of "Black's Picturesque Tourist of Scotland with Accurate Traveling Map," by Adam and Charles Black (Fourteenth Edition). Most soft cover editions do not exist or are in poor condition due to the frailty of the soft cover wraps attempting to last more than 150 years. The book is uniquely in excellent condition. The soft cover gilded decorated leather covers are in rare and excellent preserved condition, with very little shelf-wear. The pages and rare tourist engraving maps are crisp and clean save for previous owner's signature on second page. An incredible, 591-page book of picturesque engravings of locations, maps, detailed sites, history, available transportation and humorous advertisements of Scotland for your collection.
