First Published in four volumes in the early 1980s Charles Smith's Historic South Edinburgh has become a much sought after and extremely rare classic. This completely new edition distils all four volumes into one, and has been thoroughly revised and updated with much new research and information.
This is the story - spanning eight centuries - of the growth of the South Side of Edinburgh, from the Grange to Craiglockhart, from Bruntsfield to Swanston, with a special emphasis on Morningside.
This book retains all the character and flavour of the original. The result of many years researching original source material and recording living memories, Historic South Edinburgh is an important contribution to Scottish history.
