Well conceived, highly detailed and accurate information from all the latest surveys made it a highly-regarded work where reliable information could be found on any Scottish place or district.Arranged alphabetically with cross-referencing for alternative and defunct place names, the Gazetteer is a one-stop reference work on late-Victorian Scotland, historical, topographical and political. It includes all details of boundary changes and the latest Census of 1891. Included are the most up-to-date details of railways, roads and bridges as well as general local information. Longer articles on major cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow are separately indexed by subject area at the end of the article.Of interest to geographers, social historians and demographers, the Gazetteer is an invaluable reference work giving a fully documented survey of Scotland in the last decade of a remarkable century. This outstanding nineteenth-century sourcebook should be accessible to every student of Victorian and modern Britain.
