Dundee – its quaint and historic buildings
This is a facsimile of the book more commonly known as ‘Lamb’s Dundee’. The original was compiled by Dundee hotelier, Dundee High School FP and antiquarian Alexander Crawford Lamb and first published in 1895. Concerned at how many of Dundee’s historic buildings were disappearing, he sought to document their existence. This book, with fantastic illustrations by William Gibb, is an essential guide to the Dundee which existed before the Improvement Act of 1879.
