First edition, third impression hardback of WAINWRIGHT IN SCOTLAND, by Alfred Wainwright and published by BBC Books & Michael Joseph Ltd., London in June 1988. It was first published in March 1988. With photographs by Derry Brabbs.

The book is in very good condition (Clean blue cloth boards with silver lettering on spine), with minor wear to the dust jacket which is price clipped (light creasing to the edges, very slight rubbing to the top edge near the corner at the back, light sticker removal wear to front cover). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

From the dust jacket:

"For almost half a century, A. Wainwright has made an annual pilgrimage to Scotland - specifically to the Highlands, the west coast and the islands - always with eager anticipation and undiminished enthusiasm. He never fails to be thrilled by the majesty and grandeur of the mountains, the beauty of the glens, and the ever-changing seascapes.

To accompany the major BBC television series, A. Wainwright has written this exciting new book which is, once again, gloriously illustrated with the stunning photographs of Derry Brabbs. Starting in the far north, Wainwright travels down the west coast, linking the highlights of the journey in a continuous route. He travels through Sutherland and Wester Ross; he crosses to Skye, and then returns to the Central Highlands, the awe-inspiring Glen Coe and the Argyll coast. Then, by way of the Southern Highlands, he turns north again to Strath Spey and ends his travels in the Cairngorms.

Wainwright draws on his years of experience of walking and exploring the Highlands, viewing all the mountains at close range, climbing many of them and compiling a series of pen-and-ink drawings, a number of which are included in this book. The modern traveller will be able to leave his car and follow many of the routes once trod by Britain's most famous walker.

In his foreword to the book, A. Wainwright assures Scots that, although coming from south of the border, he loves their country as they do, and asks them to forgive him for presuming to write with authority about their glorious heritage. And they will. This sumptuously illustrated book is a memorable tribute by A. Wainwright to his lifelong passion for the Highlands."

8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 224 pages. Profusely illustrated with colour photographs and Wainwright`s own line drawings and maps throughout.
