3 Dakin, Audrey; Glendinning, MilesMackechnie, Aonghus Scotland's Castle Culture.
Birlinn 2011 Hardcover As New As New Book 
Hardback in Mint condition, with dustwrapper in Mint condition. First edition, ppxxvi, 345. With colour and b&w illustrations, notes, reading list, indices. The castle is an iconic building type and one of the most distinctive architectural emblems in the British Isles. This book covers the entire history of Scotland s castles, from the very first stone castles in the 13th century to those of the present day. Ever since its medieval origins, the concept of the castle has undergone constant changes, with the tall tower house being superseded in the 17th century by the classical house, and in the 18th century by a fashionable building type designed by major architects such as Robert Adam. While Scotland s Castle Culture in many ways marched with European fashion, much was distinctively Scottish - as seen in the reluctance to abandon castles as residences, and then in the power of the castle s resurgence as a building type during the years when Scotland was one of the most ferociously modernising countries in the world: the Victorian age. At this time there were few modern building types that were not candidates for castellation: not just houses, but also farms, lighthouses, banks, schools and even railway stations. Lastly, the book takes us to the present, where most castles, of whatever century, are now protected for their value as national heritage. The drama and diversity of this story is reflected in the book s structure: five chapters covering the main chronological phases of Castle Culture, followed by ten individual case studies of representative examples, from medieval Bothwell to Iain Begg's late 20th-century Raven s Craig. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS MAY BE REQUIRED. S21.

River, Railway and Ravine: Foot Suspension Bridges for Empire, Harper, Douglas
9 Harper, Douglas River, Railway and Ravine: Foot Suspension Bridges for Empire
The History Press 2015 0750962135 / 9780750962131 1st Edition Hardcover New New Book Signed by Author(s)
Hardcover, New. First edition, SIGNED BY AUTHOR, colour illustrations, appendices, index. From their mid-nineteenth-century fencing business the Harpers of Aberdeen developed a unique system of suspension that allowed their light foot suspension bridges to be relatively rigid. John Harper was one of the first to employ steel wire rope, now universally used. The Harpers' innovative work overcame the disadvantages of this type of bridge and was of considerable benefit to those who relied upon them. Harpers built over sixty such bridges throughout the UK and the British Empire between 1870 and 1910, but until now they have been little documented. The author, John Harper's great-grandson, searched the globe to find and cross those still in use. Here he tells the story of his ancestors, his journeys and the communities the bridges served. S32. Many of these types of bridges still survive today in the North of Scotland, such as those on the River Dee at Cambus o' May, Pollhollick in Ballater, Abergeldie and the Garbh Alt Shiel. There are other examples on the Glen Tanar and Birkhall Estates and also on the River Spey and River Don. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, SO FOR UK FIRST CLASS AND INTERNATIONAL, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS WILL BE REQUIRED.
