CD eBook - Memorabilia of Perth

The Memorabilia of Perth is a remarkable book, some 366 pages in length, which is an essential read for anyone with an interest in the local history of Perth or their own Perth based family history. First published in 1806 in Perth by William Morison, it contains the following:

A GUIDE TO PERTH (physical descriptions and stories relating to each of the streets in Perth, and surrounding countryside, at the turn of the 19th Century)
HISTORICAL MEMORANDA RESPECTING PERTH (including the earliest myths and history of Perth, and names of all Provosts, Bailies, Deans of Guild and Treasurers from 1465 to 1805)
CHARTERS RELATING TO THE PRIVILIGES OF PERTH (translated from Latin)
LIST OF THE MINISTERS, AND RECTORS OF THE GRAMMAR SCHOOL AND ACADEMY
LIST OF THE SUBSCRIBERS FOR BUILDING THE BRIDGE (1776), AND THE PUBLIC SEMINARIES (1804) and
THE REV. ALEXANDER DUFF'S (LATE OF TIBBERMUIR) TRADITIONAL ACCOUNT IN THE TOWN OF PERTH OF THE DEATH OF JOHN, EARL OF GOWRIE, AND HIS BROTHER, MR ALEXANDER RUTHVEN, IN 1600

Through Scotland’s Greatest Story I have now made this book available both as a CD based eBook, priced £12.99 +p&p, and as a PDF download, slightly cheaper at £10.99 available through Lulu publishing at
