Product description

The Country Life Picture Book of Scotland (1956) - vintage hardback - Scottish views
 
5/16 £12.50
 
A nice copy - complete with original pictorial dustwrapper - of the 1956 second impression of this book of Scottish views originally published in 1952, containing 59 large black and white photographic views (including the frontispiece) together with a reference map showing their approximate locations within Scotland.
 
Whilst this original 1950s volume shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully readable, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of Scotland-related collectables or books of Scottish interest.
