Victorian Scotland - Hardback
The Victorians were the harbingers of the modern age, their society driven by curiosity, a zeal for invention, and an enormous appetite for economic and imperial consumption. Now, for the first time, Historic Environment Scotland is showcasing images from its National Collection in a remarkable illustration of this landmark age.
From the pioneering work of photographers like John Forbes White and Harry Bedford Lemere, to never-before-seen excerpts from private family albums, Victorian Scotland is a window on the lives of the generation who changed the world.
224 pages, hardback.
‘A remarkable illustration of the Victorian era’ The Scotsman
‘Make no mistake, these photographs, reproduced to a wonderful standard, are indeed works of art ... The authors have chosen both their images and their words well ... The commentary adds a further dimension, even for those who feel themselves already familiar with Victorian values and with Scotland as a whole.’ The Victorian Magazine
