THE ISLAND OF ARRAN HEADRICK, Rev.
James. View of the Mineralogy, Agriculture, Manufactures and Fisheries of the Island of Arran. With Notices of Antiquities, and Suggestions for improving the Agriculture and Fisheries of the Highlands and Isles of Scotland …
First edition. The eccentric clergyman and geologist James Headrick (1759-1841) pursued a lifelong interest in the natural sciences and for a time found employment with Sir John Sinclair, probably working on The Statistical Account of Scotland.

His travels to Arran in 1806 resulted in this substantial work, dedicated to Sir Joseph Banks and mainly devoted to the mineralogy of the island.
