BONNIE SCOTLAND

(London: A. & C. Black, 1912).

SCARCE IN WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. This is the first and largest of the author's three works on Scotland published by A. & C. Black. It contains a whooping 75 beautiful plates by Palmer Sutton. Palmer was best known for his Gold Metal winning idyllic rustic landscapes painted in watercolours and Moncrieff's tour of Scotland provided him with many of his best views and settings. The success of this volume would inspire the two sequels, although each of those had only a fraction of the illustrations provided here in BONNIE SCOTLAND. Item #29804

First edition, early reprinting. Illustrated with 75 finely produced beautiful colour plates from paintings by Sutton Palmer, wonderfully reproduced and with captioned tissue guards. 8vo, publisher's lovely decorated cloth, the upper cover gilt lettered within an all-over design of Scottish thistle and heather in green, brown and purple, the spine likewise decorated, t.e.g. xi, 255pp, 4 ads. A pleasing copy, quite well preserved, with a little mild mellowing or age evidence, the cloth, colours and gilt all very well preserved indeed.
