Pictures from The Scott Country - beautiful Scotland, Described by John Geddie, Painted by E. W. Haslehust, R.B.A. [1866 – 1949], Blackie & Son Ltd., London and Glasgow.

I don’t have an exact date for this book; probably 1920, although the cover under the dost jacket is plain: after about 1911 they started to have pictures on them.

The artist died more than 70 years ago, so these illustrations are out of copyright.
