Scope and Content This entry describes Charles Calder’s notebook for the counties of Midlothian, West Lothian, Edinburgh and Dumfriesshire, one of about 27 in the Collection. In the main, this notebook contains measured sketches used in the preparation of plans to illustrate the RCAHMS Inventories, published in 1920 (Dumfries), 1929 (Mid and West Lothian) and 1951 (Edinburgh). An index at the beginning provides a list of all but a handful of the featured buildings, and lists the date of visit, generally between 1915 and 1924. Each of the sketches that was drawn into a plan is marked ‘drawn’. In a few cases, there are also sketches of architectural details, and in one case a perspective sketch. There are copious notes on the buildings visited in Dumfriesshire in 1919, possibly made by GPH Watson, the Commission’s Principal Architect, rather than Calder himself. There is a gap of some 20 years before the final entry which is a plan of the Roman bathhouse at Inveresk made in 1946. Notes by GG, 03 Feb 2016
