A Compelling Compilation

For a few years, in the 1850s, two men became enthusiastic about photography and soon became eminent in this pioneering field in mid-Victorian times. Their compelling images, compiled in a new book, focused mainly on Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Iona and Orkney. Dr Thomas Keith and John Forbes White specialised in their respective careers, as a surgeon and miller plus art collector, and actually became brothers-in-law. The finely-produced 144-page hardback book, pictured above and produced in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies, has recently been self-published by the Scottish-born Professor John Hannavy. It is only available directly through him at the attractive price of £20 plus postage and packing from £4 (for UK mailings) and upwards. Contact John Hannavy for full details.

Scottish Islands Explorer - will it be re-produced in 160 years time?
