Additional Information

The Little Book of Edinburgh is a funny, fast-paced, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic or simply strange information which no one will want to be without. Here we find out about the most unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, famous sons and daughters and literally hundreds of wacky facts. Geoff Holder’s new book contains historic and contemporary trivia including such gems as the real story of Greyfriars Bobby (he was a publicity stunt), what happened when Walter Scott’s nanny tried to kill him, and where to find a decent set of anti-bodysnatching tools. Dip in at random and discover little-known oddities from the worlds of sport, crime, industry, cinema, TV, pop music and religion. Meet the 19th-century counterparts of our favorite modern detectives, from Jackson Brodie to John Rebus. Seek out historical sites from the distant past to World War II. Tangle with the Tattoo and freak out with the Festival. Meet strange animals and stranger people, from a man abducted by Native Americans to the local councillor who enjoyed a little breaking and entering in his spare time. A remarkably engaging little book, this is essential reading for visitors and locals alike.
