16211. Anderson, William. (Editor Peterhead Sentinal): The Howes O' Buchan, being notes local, historical, and antiquarian, regarding the various places of interest along the route of the Buchan Railway.

Edinburgh: W.P. Nimmo; Aberdeen: Lewis Smith; Peterhead: "Sentinal Office", 1865. vi+100+4 pp. 17 x 11 cm. Nine tissue-guarded mounted albumen prints. Blue cloth bevelled boards with gilt lining and titling. A.e.g. Images are 6 x 9.5 cm. They include Peterhead from the Links, Howes o' Buchan House, Inverugie, The Castle etc., Ravenscraig, Pitfour House, Fraserburgh from the south, Cairnbulg Castle, Strichen Village and Strichen House. The spine has been professionally relaid, and this is a good tight copy. The photographs are mounted on heavier paper than the text and remain unfaded and very fresh. The Fraserborough photograph shows the railway line down to the Harbour with various railway building and sailing ships in the distance. This is the only illustration to include a view of the railway. Owner's name R.R. Henderson, Viewmount, Blackhill, on the ffep. This is a lovely example of an early Railway guide, three years after opening, albeit without details of timetables, fares etc. and of quite early photographs of scenes en route. A scarce item. The Buchan Railway was opened in 1862 but fell foul to Beeching cuts, and finally closed in the 1970s. There are now serious efforts to reopen it for much the same reasons as the Borders Railway was partly reopened recently. Good Luck. (We cannot supply scans or copies of the illustrations.) 125.00

Second edition. iv + 300 pp. 21 x 14 cm. Half leather and marbled boards, marbled foreedges and endpapers. Five panelled spine with raised bands, gilt decoration and lettering. There is rubbing and edgewear to the boards, and the title page has been professionally repaired having had a name cut out along with the bottom four cm. of the page. Internally everything is tight, clean and unmarked. In short this is a book advocating a holiday in Italy as very good for human health and happiness. Who in their right mind could disagree with that!!! The first section is on Education and Avocation, the wear and tear of life. The second part outlines a change of air or the diary of a philosopher covering travel experiences in Italy, and the third part is on the Influence, Moral, Physical, and Medicinal, of an Italian climate and Italian residence in sickness and in health. Overall, despite some flaws, a good edition. 45.00
