I have here a very rare book entitled SOUVENIR OF SCOTLAND Its Cities, Lakes and Mountains. A First Edition published by T Nelson and Sons in 1891. It features 120 tissue-guarded chromolithographic scenes of Scotland (2 per page).

Attractive mid blue decorative hardboards with large gilt celtic wheel in the middle of the front board. Gilt, black and red decoration to the spine. Boards show minor wear to edges and corners, and the front free endpapers is missing, but are otherwise in very good condition. Pages are gilt edged. Pages clean apart from a tiny bit of foxing on a few pages. 70 pages, 20 x 16 cm.
