Arran in Books – from the 18th C to Present
When & Where
Given by John Jackson. A collection of books accumulated for the last fifty years will be the basis of a look at various historical themes about the island – the clearances and the profound social changes of the eighteenth century; the growth of tourism; and the development of the science of geology in which Arran played a big part. And as an aside, something about the books themselves and the development of publishing.
