Hi
Yes, there are 3 North British books, all commissioned by the company. The 1985 (by Leslie Gardiner) is the most recent (a little bird tells me they still have some at the distillery!); then there was one in 1960 and a very nice and rare one from 1935 - all anniversaries of the distillery.
The 1935 one has lovely illustrations which makes it very special for that period and of grain distilling. It's hard to find and expensive (often over £100).
Last time I looked the NB website had PDF scans of these books available.

I was at Whisky Fringe. It was very lively.

The PDF scans are downloadable from the "History Downloads" sections but the first link appears to be broken.

To quote the website:
There have been three books written on the History of The North British Distillery Co Ltd. These books have been scanned and converted into pdf format. The first download is for the First 50 Years of the company and the second is for 75 Years and thridly the is the Centenary book.
