    Sir David Russell: A Biography by MacIntyre, Lorn MacInnes

    Canongate, 1994. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 6.25" x 9.5. h/b 259 pages, condition is Very Good. Lorn Macintyre's illuminating account of the life and work of Sir David Russell (1872-1955) shows the famous Fife-born papermaker to be a cultured humanist and a pioneer of New Age thinking. As a young partner in his father's firm of Tullis Russell, Sir David's love of books and great ideas made him seek broader connections. He developed an early interest in alternative medicine, and in 1912 became president of the Leven Lodge of the Theosophical Society. Shortly after, Sir David met Wellesley Tudor Pole. The complementary qualities in the deep friendship between these two men led them to embark on a great 'quest' of archaeological discovery in the eastern Mediterranean. Sir David encouraged Tudor Pole's visionary belief that there were important relics to be found, and they eventually did uncover the site of the house of Justinian. Spirituality was a living concept to Sir David Russell, and this biography tells of his role as instigator of the lona Retreat. He was also a philanthropic and innovative businessman who took a keen personal interest in his employees and their well-being. When Sir David died in 1956, the Tullis Russell mills in Markinch employed a thousand people in a community-based plant with almost a village atmosphere. The Russell Trust has continued to finance excavations and scholarships throughout Scotland and the world.

    Cricket in the East: The East of Scotland Cricket Association from 1953 until 2014 by David Potter

    UK: David Potter, 2014. Soft cover. New/No Jacket. p/b 84 pages, condition is NEW. Cricket in Edinburgh and the surrounding district has been played for a long time, being particularly strong in the FP teams of the Edinburgh schools but also in places like Stenhousemuir, Fauldhouse, Freuchie and Kirkcaldy, a team sadly no longer with us. An Association was founded in 1933, but it was not until 1953 that a League was initiated. In this respect, the East were many decades behind the Western Union and the Scottish Counties, but the League and its accompanying Cup competitions, notably the Masterton Trophy, have always been fiercely contested. In recent years, changes have been convoluted and not always in the best interests of the sport, but here cricket historian David Potter attempts to give an account of cricket in the East of Scotland over the past decades. There is now a Championship and 9 Divisions, which mean that an awful lot of people are involved in cricket in the East of Scotland.

    Just Daft - the Chic Murray Story (H/B) by Robbie Grigor

    Birlinn, 2008. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 7.5" x 10. H/B. 226 pages, condition is very good. CHIC MURRAY was a comic Colossus, a Salvador Dali of humour who turned the Celtic tradition of story-telling into an art form. His oblique, often perverse look at life was underpinned by a stunning sense of timing and led him to become one of the great comic innovators of the twentieth century. In Just Daft, written with the full co-operation of Chic's family, Robbie Grigor follows Chic's career from his amateur beginnings in the 1930s and subsequent double act with his wife Maidie all the way to the Royal Variety Show of 1956 and his appearances in films such as Casino Royale (1967), Gregory's Girl (I960) and the hit musical You'll Never Walk Alone (1984). With jokes, stories, photographs and tributes from fellow comedians and others, this is the ultimate celebration of the king of alternative humour

    The Heart of Glasgow by House, Jack

    UK: Hutchinson, 1978. 3rd Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 21.8 x 14 x 2.3 cm. h/b 208 pages, condition is very good. "Heart of Glasgow" is still regarded as the quintessential book on Glasgow. It stays strictly within the bounds of what has always been referred to as 'the City', that is the area resembling a cross and consisting of the High Street from as far north as the cathedral down to Bridgegate on the Clyde with the east-west thoroughfare stretching across the High Street through the Trongate and down what was to become Argyle Street. Here, and in the surrounding closes, courts, backlands, feus and glebes all human life was to be found. Jack House's seminal work is presented in the form of a tour ensuring that it will appeal to Glaswegians and visitors alike. On it he introduces the reader to many places, some familiar, some not so, and sadly today, many now long gone. This all acts as a wonderful counterpoint to foreword writer Jack Maclean's Glasgow of today. Since Jack House first wrote this book the city has changed dramatically but within the heart of it, change has been less obvious and the medieval layout of the city still remains. These are the streets that Jack takes the reader through in a book which is neither guide, nor formal history, but something in between the two. It is a journey every visitor to Glasgow should take.

    The Cairngorms : The Cairngorms, the Mounth, Lochnagar by Watson, Adam

    Edinburgh, Scotland: SMC District Guide, 1986. 5th Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 5.5" X 8.5. James Renny. H/B 303 pages, maps as endpapers, condition is very good. Sir Henry Alexander wrote his famous guide to the Cairngorms over half a century ago. While the profile of the landscape has remained unchanged the surface detail and knowledge have not. This latest edition of the guide is the first to be completely rewritten since Sir Henry's definitive account of the Cairngorm mountains which had been revised several times. Dr Adam Watson, with his immense knowledge of the area, was the most recent reviser; but now, with a further edition required, events and changes in the landscape compel a reappraisal and new appreciation of the Cairngorms in the light of the mid 1970s. The book is no longer aimed exclusively at the climber who is served with separate pocket guide books. Everyone with a broad interest in outdoor recreation will find the present work invaluable indeed essential for a visit to the area. For those with mountaineering interests a general description of some of the best climbs, hard and easy, is included in each chapter. The design and presentation of the book continues to be revised. More photographs are included, and there are sketch maps by James Renny for each of the 15 subdivisions of the region. As always, the author has endeavoured to provide the most up to date information on matters of access, accommodation shelters, public transport systems, etc.
