OF
EDINBURGH;

CONTAINING
A HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION

OF THE CITY,
WITH A PARTICULAR ACCOUNT, or

EVERY REMARKABLE OBJECT IN,
OR ESTABLISHMENT CONNECTED WITH, THE

SCOTTISH METROPOLIS.

By J. STARK.

ILLUSTRATED WITH A PLAN, AND UPWARDS OF

THIRTY ENGRAVINGS ON WOOD.

Here Wealth still swells the golden tide,

As busy Trade his labours plies ;
There Architecture's noble pride

Bids elegance and splendour rise ;
Here Justice from her native skies, 1

High wields her balance and her rod
There Learning, with his eagle eyes,
Seeks Science in her coy abode.
