The 1861-1862 publication contains two large fold-out illustrations of Scottish buildings which were published by the Architectural Institute of Scotland from measured Drawings prepared by the late Thomas Hamilton, Esq. Architect. Also, it contains detailed sketches of the doorway, elevation, arches, and other details.

Objects of the Institute: "the First is, that a good deal of attention will be directed towards the subject generally, and many persons will be induced to examine the principles of the art, and desire to know something of the rules by which a bad and untasteful building is to be distinguished from one that is a good and correct one.”

“A second object we might look for, as a result of the formation of an Architectural Institute, is the formation of an Architectural Library.... (a third object is] to stay the hand of destruction often stretched out against some precious remains of ecclesiastical or castlellated architecture."
