GOOD ONLY. Book A fascinating set of topography exploring the Agriculture, Commerce, Mines, and Manufactures; of the Population, Cities, Towns, Villages, of each County within Scotland. Really wants a rebind, but a good set and priced to allow for a quality rebind. Probably around 650 when done. Illustrated throughout with103picturesque plates in total, featuring illustrated title pages to the front of each volume. Collation presumed complete. Reflecting his varied professional experiences, Forsyth's chief works include Principles and Practice of Agriculture (2 vols. 1804), The Principles of Moral Science (vol. i. 1805), Political Fragments (1830), and Observations on the Book of Genesis (1846). However, his best-known work is The Beauties of Scotland (5 vols. 18058), which still maintains popularity today, due in part to the many engravings which it contains of Scottish towns and places of interest. Complete in five volumes. Condition: Rebound in decorative calf with gilt letter to the spines. Externally, all are a trifle rubbed with shelfwear to the head and tail of spine. All joints are strained and may possibly detach in the post despite our best efforts. Internally, all are generally firmly bound with bright pages. Generally clean throughout with occasional instances of spotting, particularly to first and last pages. Library bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume. Overall: GOOD ONLY.
Good. Book The first edition of this topographical work. Adorned with engravings of points of interest in Scotland throughout. Collated, appears to belacking two plates to volume IV, otherwise complete. Appears to be lacking the engravings 'Tarnaway Castle and Calder Castle. 'This work provides an insight into the agriculture, commerce, mines and manufactures as well as population, cities, towns villages etc of Scotland. Work does not state and author, entries on Copac attribute authorship to Robert Forsyth. This is Forsyth's best known work as it was admired for the valuable information it provided as well as the engravings. Condition: In half calf bindings with paper covered boards. Externally, generally smart with rubbing to the joints and to the extremities. Heavy rubbing to the paper covered boards resulting in some loss to the paper coverings. Small amount of loss to the head and tail of all spines due to rubbing and bumping. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound. Pages are generally bright with the odd spots throughout. Repair to title page of vol IV. OVerall: GOOD.
Tipped into Vol. 1 is a beautiful five color map of Scotland engraved in 1807.

SPINE LETTERING AND EMBOSSED DESIGNS ARE ALL PRESENT, ALTHOUGH DIMMED. THE INTERIOR HAS ALL PLATES, WITH ONLY A FEW FOXED, AND REMARKABLY CLEAN PAGES WITH VERY OCCASIONAL FOXING, BUT VERY LITTLE. ALL IN ALL, THIS IS A CLEAN, TIGHT SET. UNCOMMON.
