About this book

Edinburgh, 'Grey Athens of the North', owes much of its splendour to the quality of the sandstone from which most of its finest buildings are constructed. "The Building Stones of Edinburgh" focuses on the geological characteristics of these sandstones which were extracted from local quarries and includes within its pages examples of many of the fine buildings which have made Edinburgh famous.
