1 Massie, Allan Glasgow: A History
London Barrie & Jenkins 1989 0712620540 / 9780712620543 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Fine 
0712620540 135 pages including index. In this tribute to a city he loves, author provides both a history and a character study, describing Glasgow at different moments in time: the medieval city; the eighteenth-century expansion; the mid-Victorian heyday; the Edwardian sunset; the Depression of the 1930s; post-war decline; the renaissance of the 1980s. Examines the economic function of the city at each of these periods, drawing attention to characteristic architecture and to representative individuals, posing questions about the relation of Glasgow to the rest of Scotland, and exploring the paradox that Europe's City of Culture should have owed its wealth to its trade with the New World, and should be arguably the easternmost American city. Illustrated with black and white colour plates. Gift inscription upon half-title page else unmarked. Minimal wear. Excellent copy.
