Ayrshire Monuments Etched by Robert Bryden

Period:
20th Century
Description:

Robert Bryden had a real love for Ayrshire and its history. He drew many local sites of historical significance, many of which he strongly believed should be treasured as monuments of Ayrshire's history.

In this beautifully presented book he illustrates 22 of these monuments in an attempt to encourage others to "cherish jealously all those records of the past, that to future generations they may act as incentives to exertion." 

50 copies of the book were printed. Each etching is presented on its own page and is preceded by a page of information, written by Bryden, about the monument and its significance. 

 

The contents page, foreword and two examples of the etchings can be viewed via the 'Alternative View' options. The two etchings are Crossraguel Abbey and the Largs Battle Memorial. Other etchings from the book can be seen by going to 'Related Items'.
