Edinburgh : A Very Peculiar History, Hardback Book

Edinburgh : A Very Peculiar History Hardback

Part of the Very Peculiar History series


Discover the horrible and hilarious secrets of Edinburgh's chequered (or perhaps tartaned) past.

Fiona Macdonald presents a history of Scotland's most powerful city, from ancient to modern, gracious to grimy.

Edinbroo! 'Auld Reekie', 'Quite enchanting - like fairlyland!','The Athens of the North', 'Edina, Scotia's darling seat', 'World Festival City'(modest, huh?)' or even a 'Mad God's Dream' of architectural splendour - Edinburgh has been all things to all men (and women).

Fiona Macdonald explores the history of the city in this pocket-sized, quirky gift book.
