Reminiscences of Scottish Life and Character

Pictures and accompanying texts from Reminiscences of Scottish Life and Character by Dean Ramsay, with illustrations by Henry W. Kerr, R.S.A. (T. N. Foulis, London & Edinburgh, 1911).

Henry Wright Kerr lived from 1857 – 1936, died more than 70 years ago, placing the pictures out of copyright. Dean Ramsay lived from 1778 to 1872; the first edition of the book was published in 1857, and I have the fourteenth edition. Although there were some changes made for this edition, they were made anonymously (since the original author had died) and are themselves out of copyright, so the entire work is out of copyright.

A poor-quality scan of a slightly different edition of this book is online together with a Project Gutenberg edition I think, at archive.org
