Medieval Churches of Scotland, by Mike Salter
Book published by Folly Publications in 2011, 130 pages. Paperback (N6769)
This book provides a fascinating account of the old churches in Scotland, and is illustrated throughout with lots of small black and white photographs, as well as drawings, maps and floor plans.
From rear side cover: Following an introductory section describing the development of the parish church in Scotland from the Early Christian era through to the Reformation of 1560, this book has a well illustrated gazetteer of about 150 of the most notable churches. The majority of those lying in rural locations are now in ruins. Supplementary sections with maps for various counties and districts then give brief notes on the remains of another 300 buildings. A few chapels which once formed parts of colleges and hospitals are included, but not cathedrals or monastic churches since these appear in a companion volume. The largest and most complex of the buildings described here are the series of later medieval churches which served important burghs such as those at Aberdeen,Edinburgh, Haddington, Linlithgow, Perth and Stirling.
Condition of the book is generally excellent. The cover is clean and tidy, the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. Their is an old price printed and a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
