With 6 plates. Contemporary tree-calf, scuffed, front joint loose, minor damage to spine; interior very clean. Ownership inscriptions on the half title. First edition.

Includes 6 lovely plates of towns, countryside, and sights. Thomson (1746-1817) began his career a librarian at Dupplin Castle and eventually studied theology at St. Andrews, "but soon displayed tastes and affinities discordant with his office" (DNB). Thomson became a prolific writer who wrote and edited a great number of books and articles including several popular works of history and travel. Bookseller Inventory # 14936
