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".

The same printed title, A PRESENT FROM THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION, EDINBURGH 1886, 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, although most of these individual silks do not have the woven title, only printed.
