Born in Edinburgh, Daniel Wilson (1816-92) initially pursued an artistic career and spent time in Turner's studio. However, in 1846 he became a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and devoted the rest of his life to archaeology, anthropology and university administration. He was active in the Society's attempts to save historic buildings in Edinburgh, and the city's built environment was the subject of this two-volume 1848 work, which is illustrated with engravings after his own drawings. In Volume 2, Wilson continues to cover local antiquities and traditions, with each chapter looking at a different area of the Old Town. Leith, the New Town, and ecclesiastical buildings are also discussed. The historical detail, with references, is immense, and Wilson's enthusiasm for his city is evident throughout. Wilson's second major work, the landmark Prehistoric Annals of Scotland (second edition, 1863), is also reissued in this series.
