James Thin. Edinburgh. 1890.
FIRST EDITION. 8vo. (8.1 x 6.1 inches). 3 colour printed plates of local characters and 8 mono plates of views. A very good copy in a highly decorative early leather binding of full dark green morocco, mostly mellowed to an attractive brown colour, with five raised bands to the spine, each ruled in gilt. Compartments ruled and decorated in gilt. Boards fully gilt with elaborate lattice design which has Rampant lion and thistle designs in each small compartments, all within a double ruled gilt border. Turn-ins with decorative gilt borders. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Small area of loss to the bottom outer corner of the front board but overall still a very good attractive late Victorian leather binding.
