Brown, Ivor Summer in Scotland
London: Collins, 1952 First edition. Blue cloth, gilt, map endpapers, index Pagination: 320. Summer in Scotland, like its predecessor Winter in London, which pleased so many Londoners, resident or dispersed, is written neither as a guidebook nor as a series of disconnected essays. It is the record of a Scot, born in Malaya and working in London, who loves and knows his native country. There he has returned for many summers, and this book is the result of his journeys, reflections and delights. With him we wander round the country, through the towns, over moors and hills, dip into the past and explore the present. No travelling companion could be more catholic in his tastes, more widely and humanely knowledgable about the history and the literature, the qualities and the humours of the places that he visits, than Ivor Brown.<P>To those unlucky people who have never been to Scotland this book provides good reasons for making a visit now. Those of us who are already addicts will finish the book with a sigh at our own ignorance and with gratitude that it should have been so delightfully alleviated. Moreover it is a book that excites the imagination and demands that the reader follow the author in his enthusiasm. Scotland means many things to many people; and whatever their nationality, they will find their Scotland, be it sporting or aesthetic, literary or historical, vividly and lightly portrayed in the pages of this book. Contents: Far corner; In the dead vast; Charles’s country; Banff and barley; Granite and getting on [Aberdeen]; Angus and the authors; Royal Deeside; Bed and board [Pitlochry]; Perthshire and power; Sands of pleasure [St Andrews]; The conspicuous town [Edinburgh]; Ayr and song; Glasgow and Clyde; Border and ballad.
