Comments:

by Geoffrey Godden:
Godden does not record this title.

Other comments:
Godden discusses at great length a Grant multi-silk picture with printed title A PRESENT FROM THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION, EDINBURGH 1886 which comprises the Coat of Arms and five larger silk views, being " The Exhibition Buildings", " The Band Stand", "The Old Tolbooth", untitled "The Old Edinburgh Street", and "The Nertherbow Port".
He also discusses a variant of this silk, with the printed title, OLD EDINBURGH VIEWS, which contains only three of the five silks.
Godden however does not mention the printed title above.

The same printed title is recorded multiple times on this site, although the actual silks are different in each record.

The individual silks were also issued by Grant as individually mounted pictures.
