EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the enchanting streets of Jamess Court in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1928. The image was captured by WH Caffyn, a skilled photographer of his time. Jamess Court holds great historical significance as it was the residence of renowned Scottish diarist and author James Boswell from 1723 to 1727. It was within these very walls that Boswell entertained Dr Samuel Johnson before embarking on their legendary journey through the Western Isles in 1773. The photograph is featured in "The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides with Samuel Johnson" a literary masterpiece penned by Boswell himself. This book offers readers an intimate glimpse into their autumn adventures across the Lowlands and Highlands of Scotland. As we gaze upon this monochrome engraving, we are transported back centuries ago when this architectural gem stood proudly amidst its picturesque surroundings. The image showcases the exterior beauty of James Court's elegant building, constructed during the eighteenth century. Published in "The Bookman - Special Christmas Number" by Hodder & Stoughton Ltd. , London in 1928, this print serves as a timeless reminder of Scotland's rich history and cultural heritage.
