It's a beautiful book.

It has already served me exceptionally well in terms of information, I have really enjoyed the old maps of Edinburgh, as I grew up near Leith, and I was able to show my OH in print exactly how prestigeous an artist Alison Kinnaird is and how I was completely justified in buying my fabulous lantern.
It helped bring to life many of the pieces of glass we saw in Edinburgh in the museum... and the chandeliers we saw through the windows of the Assembly Rooms in George Street.

I'll see if I can make a quantity available there, but it will be difficult for me to prepare for the show as I will be in The Netherlands until 24th February.

In the meantime it's not a problem for me to post them to anyone wanting copies - it'll be the same price as I offer free UK shipping on all my books.

Now reduced to 7.50
including free postage and packing within the UK

There are now only a few of the Scotland's Glass Directories still available, so these will be offered free with the Scotland's Glass book on a first-come, first-served basis. Please also note that this book will not be reprinted!
