The History of Dunblane

By Alex B. Barty

This is a hard-to-find history of the cathedral town and former Royal burgh of Dunblane, situated north of Stirling, Scotland.

The book traces the towns history from its earliest days up to the start of the 20th century. It includes chapters on the decay of Dunblane Cathedral following the reformation; Dunblane as it appeared to some ancient writers; the lands of Cromlix in the 16th and 17th centuries; the owners of Glassingall; Dunblane in the '45; Jessie, the flower of Dunblane; agriculture at the beginning of the 19th century; old mills, the Market Cross, an old house, and the wells; and some poetry and poets of Dunblane.

Published by Eneas Mackay in 1944, first edition. In blue boards with gold titling, the book measures approx. 10 1/4" x 7 3/4" with 296 pages and 8 black and white illustrations.

The case of the book is in very good condition with bumping to the spine ends and a water stain running down the spine edge of the rear board and extending into the board to about 1/2" to 3/4" - see photograph.

The contents are tight and clean with no inscription.
