Born in Edinburgh, Daniel Wilson (1816-92) initially pursued an artistic career and spent time in Turner's studio. However, in 1846 he became a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and devoted the rest of his life to archaeology, anthropology and university administration. He was active in the Society's attempts to save historic buildings in Edinburgh, and the city's built environment was the subject of this two-volume 1848 work, which is illustrated with engravings after his own drawings. In Volume 1, Wilson begins by tracing the city's history from earliest times. The latter part of the volume and Volume 2 cover local antiquities and traditions, with each chapter looking at a different area of the Old Town. Leith, the New Town, and ecclesiastical buildings are then discussed. Wilson's second major work, the landmark Prehistoric Annals of Scotland (second edition, 1863), is also reissued in this series.

Book Description:

Daniel Wilson (1816-92) trained as an artist before turning to a scholarly career in archaeology and anthropology. This two-volume work on Edinburgh's historic buildings and antiquities was first published in 1848. Alongside detailed historical notes, Wilson's illustrations record places that were being threatened by development, or were already lost.
