"(A) miscellany covering many sides of Perthshire's life, past and present; and author and artist have combined to portray the County not only as the summer visitor sees it, but also as it is in its unfrequented glens and villages and in the quiet seasons of the year. The Trossachs have often been described, but in these page the reader will learn also of the wealth of beauty and historic glamour that lie in other parts - in Rannoch and Athol, Glenshee, Glenlyon, or the Sma' Glen, in villages like Fortingal, Taymouth or Killin, and something too of unfamiliar Perthshire characters, like Struan Robertson, Neil Gow, the fiddler, or Charles Macintosh of Inver." Very light browning and a few foxing marks on one preliminary page, two small bumps to bottom edge/corner of pages, very light browning and a few tiny foxing marks to fore-edge and bottom edge of text block, small bump to bottom corners of boards and bottom edge of front board, three other tiny edge/corner bumps, very slight lean to spine, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has edge wrinkling/creasing, small edge tears, a few very small and small edge chips, protected in a mylar sleeve.
