Slim 4to. ([1]-64)pp. 8 engraved plates (plates nos. 1-8), and a folding map. Unopened in parts, p.1 lightly browned, some minor soiling to extremities of a few leaves, disbound, loosely inserted in modern paper wrapps. with paper title label and booksellers ink stamp to upper wrapp. From the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Volume IX. According to DNB this paper by Thomas Lauder Dick (1784-1848) was the first that drew the world’s attention to the extraordinary parallel roads of Glen Roy. In this paper, he conclusively proves that they were a natural feature, ‘the result probably of the action of a lake.’ The splendid engravings and map were engraved on copper by William Miller after the authors own drawings.
