2 volumes, folio, large paper copy, uncut pages, engraved pictorial titles and 191 hand coloured copper engraved plates. In original grey boards and printed paper labels. The author's novelty was to publish text with views. The first part of the Antiquities series appeared in Feb or March 1772, with each view and its descriptive text on a separate page. The Antiquities of Scotland was compiled with tours in 1788, 89, 90 and publication completed in 1791 (see Bobins # 5451). On his second tour in 1791, he met Robert Burns and the two became firm friends. He became the subject of some witty verses by Burns, who was inspired by Grose to write 'Tam o' Shanter' to accompany drawings of Allway Kirk printed in The Antiquities of Scotland'.
