Illustrated card covers in As New condition. First edition, b&w illustrations, bibliography, index. This book looks at visual images as an alternative and undervalued source of evidence for ideas about the Scottish GĂ idhealtachd in the period 1700-1880. Illustrated with 100 plates, it brings together many little known and previously unrelated images. Addressing the textual bias inherent in Scottish historical studies, the book examines a broad range of maps, plans, paintings, drawings, sketches and printed images, arguing that the concept of antiquity was the single most powerful influence driving the visual representation of the Highlands and Islands from 1700 to 1880, and indeed beyond. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS MAY BE REQUIRED.
