Additional Product Information
There were many travellers to the Scottish Islands during the 18th & 19th century, most overwhelmed by the wilderness and beauty they encountered. George Clayton Atkinson, a keen naturalist from Newcastle, is one of the least well known, however during his trips in 1831 & 1833, he recorded in a detailed diary his experiences in the Western Isles, Skye & St Kilda, whilst his friend and artist, William Train, recorded in rich watercolours and drawings what they saw.
David A. Quine, in a labour of love, has managed to decipher the old notebooks provided him by members of the family of Atkinson and provided an insight into their experiences.
In excellent nearly new condition with original dust cover.
