A landmark in the history of photographically illustrated books, The Old Closes and Streets of Glasgow was published in three editions. In 1871, Annan printed a handful of volumes comprising 31 albumen prints. In 1877, Annan published a volume of 40 carbon prints in an edition 60. A final, posthumous edition was printed in 1900 in two editions of 100 copies, one by James Maclehose & Sons and the other by T. & R. Annan & Sons, the photographic firm founded by Thomas Annan in 1873 and later held by his son, from which this volume is issued. This last edition of 50 photogravures features both Annan’s original images as well as those later made by the Annan firm in the 1880s and 1890s.
