From "Scotsman," June 2, 1884...C.B. Black's guidebooks have a character of their own; and that character is a good one...He does not 'get up' the places as a mere hack guide-book writer is often, by the necessity of the case, compelled to do. Hence he is able to correct common mistakes, and to supply information on minute points of much interest apt to be overlooked by the hurried observer."
