Since the mid-18th century, Edinburgh's City Council has amassed over 4,500 artworks in a variety of media - including drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, photography and tapestry - and the collection, which focuses on Scottish art, continues to grow. In this handsome volume, Popiel presents reproductions and detailed commentaries on a selection of 100 works which depict Edinburgh and its inhabitants, from a 'prospect' of the city by John Abraham Slezer (c.1650-1717) to David Annard's statue of Robert Fergusson (2004).
