> > Digital Library series.
> > It is a digitised copy of an 1878 book "The Old Country Houses of the
> > Glasgow Gentry" which was originally published in 1870.
> > It contains pictures of 100 old mansions with short biographies of the
> > families who owned them. It also has 1776 and 1807 maps of old Glasgow,
> > 1774 sketch of the Trongate, and a listing of the subscribers to the 112
> > copies of the original printing.
> > Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
