Calton Hill and the Plans for Edinburgh's Third New Town
Published for the 200th anniversary of Playfair’s design for the old City Observatory and plans for the third New Town, this fascinating book analyses the origin of the idea of Edinburgh as the ‘Athens of the North’and includes rare and beautiful illustrations of Georgian Edinburgh. It considers how the architectural expression of Calton Hill has been perceived, accepted and rejected as ideas surrounding cultural identity, governance and nationalism have changed over the last 200 years.
