Antiquarian Scottish Books in Adobe Reader format

Over the years Electric Scotland has acquired many antiquarian books with the intention of adding them to the site.  However in very recent times we have seen a start made by various libraries to scan in copies of their books.  Also, companies like Microsoft and Google are now busy scanning in books from libraries around the world.  We note that some of the books that are appearing in Internet archives have been taken from ourselves and we really don't mind that being done. The purpose of Electric Scotland is to make a body of work available so people can learn about the History of Scotland, the Scots and people and places of Scots descent.

The files in here have been downloaded from various sources and we have then optimised them for the web.  For example one book was 525Mb in size but after we optimised it we got it down to 85Mb and so making it much easier to download. Many of the books in here we have purchased ourselves but see little point in duplicating work already done by others.

Each link goes to a web page where we endeavour to provide an introduction to give you a better opportunity to decide if you wish to download it. At the foot of each page you'll find a link to download the book and information on the file size.
