DUNLAP, Jean. The British Fisheries Society 1786-1893. Edinburgh: John Donald, (1978). Pp 239,  pp plates. 8vo, blue cloth. "The British Fisheries Society was founded in 1786. With the support of Parliament, and through the energies of a band of public-spirited leaders, it created new communities in remote areas, experimented with farming methods, built roads, and organised a series of fishing villages at Ullapool, Tobermory, Lochbay in Skye, and Pulteneytown in Caithness. Much new and graphic detail emerges about the founding of these settlements.... The methods employed are fully discussed, and an attempt is made to measure the success of the whole enterprise." -from the dj. Vg in dj. 60.00
