A history of Abernethy and Nethy Bridge in Strathspey on the northern side of the Cairngorm plateau. In his preface the author describes it as being a place where he has spent "the best years of my life." The Rev. William Forsyth used "papers" from the Castle Grant to write the history that covers details of the Parish from early times, its characters, folklore and legend, natural history, landowners and of course the influence of the nearby Cairngorm.
As its provenance suggests this is an extremely well presented copy of a rare edition. Fine gilt titles and image on clean olive green cover boards. Overall sound binding with bright and clean inside pages throughout. There is gilt edging along the top of the pages.
