Edinburgh Closes', published 1884, contains
12 attractive etchings by J Munro Bell. There are figures in most of the
etchings, and also hens in the White Horse Close etching.
Each etching measures about 9ins x 7 ins and is
printed on paper about 15ins x 11 ins.
The copy that I
have seen is at the National Library of Scotland. It is
described as a 'book' and comprises a frontispiece, index and 12
engravings, each separated by tissue paper, but all pages are unbound:
'Old Edinburgh Closes' -
Old Edinburgh Closes
II St John's
V White Horse
XI Old Playhouse
XII Little Lochend
LIbrary of Scotland paid £2 10s 0d for this 'book' in on 25 April 1929.
