John Warrick’s History of Old Cumnock 1899

Although there are several free sources of the digitised book available online we felt that none of these really did the book justice. They miss out some of the finer details such as good quality copies of the illustrated plates, or some have recoloured the pages or missed out the map completely. None contain anything about the history of the book as an object in itself or anything about its author John Warrick. Here we remedy that.

The book here was digitised over a few months and scanned from 3 copies by the late Bobby Grierson. He has tried to present this version as close to the original as possible, as it would have first appeared when published in 1899.

The book is too large to download online but we can do a digital transfer.
