By George H. Kinnear, F.E.I.S. (1921)


Mr Kinnear’s death when he had written the text of this volume, but had not finally revised it, left the work to be completed by the general editor. Fortunately, the changes which Mr Kinnear intended to make were clearly marked ; and these have been closely followed. As it has been impossible to find an accurate list of those who, by advice or otherwise, assisted Mr Kinnear, will all who did so kindly accept this general acknowledgment of their much-appreciated help?

The general editor is deeply indebted to his friend, Mr J. B. Philip, himself a son of the Mearns, who has given unstintedly of his full knowledge of the county and has rendered invaluable service in the reading of the proofs. In addition, Mr Philip generously presented a number of his own photographs for use in illustration.
