The University of Edinburgh was founded in 1583 and has since grown vastly and is now considered to be one of the world's top universities. The lavishly illustrated book, written by Jean Grier and Mary Bownes, looks at how philanthropy over the years has shaped the University community and allowed the University to develop into a leading academic institution.
