Cabinet 6

This Guide through Glasgow (1834) was a presentation copy from the publisher to James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd.

M’Phun’s Guide through Glasgow.

It covers Glasgow in some 116 pages, beginning with a brief history of the city, and then detailing (among others) the Hunterian Museum, the slaughter-house, the gaol, and the Theatre Royal. It ends with stage coach departure times, and contains two engravings: the Gothic styled Catholic Chapel, and the Royal Exchange.

Quite conceivably Hogg used this convenient guide to traverse the streets of Glasgow.
