Bibliography of Edinburgh History

About this Resource

The OEC online Bibliography of Edinburgh History brings together a remarkable collection of more than 2,000 items – books, chapters, journal articles, and dissertations – covering the rich heritage of the city.

You may well be amazed by what you can find amongst publications dating from Maitland’s 1753 History of Edinburgh and Leith. The content ranges in time from prehistory to modern times and across themes: social, cultural, economic, architectural, etc. The villages and communities of Edinburgh feature too.

The Bibliography is freely available, given the Club's desire to make it easier for anyone to pursue their interest in the city’s history.
