Edinburgh Books in a Silent Auction

Quiet Please.

One of my favourite bookshops in Edinburgh, the Morningside Oxfam bookshop, is running a silent auction. On sale is a collection of ancient books about Edinburgh, including such gems as Edinburgh 1329-1929, Edinburgh Sketches and Memories, Edinburgh Vignettes, and Traditions of Edinburgh.

The magic of  these fine old books are the illustrations: engravings and water colour scenes of Edinburgh which convey an atmosphere of times we can only imagine.
