Parish of Logie (County of Stirling) (Statistical Account of Scotland 1791-1799)

A purported distant relative, Rev. James WRIGHT (1721-1800) is supposed to have written a history of the parish where he served in Logie, Scotland, entitled: Parish of Logie (County of Stirling) (Statistical Account of Scotland 1791-1799). I would love to find a copy of this work to see what, if any, mention of the Wright family history might be contained.

I have been unable to locate a copy on Google books, but I did find mention of it at the GENUKI site (http://www.dgnscrn.demon.co.uk/genuki/STI/Logie/index.html).

I believe James WRIGHT is the brother of my ancestor, Robert WRIGHT (1688-1749). The Wrights were from the Logie area of Scotland before Robert's son, John, came to America sometime before 1753 when he was married in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

I have found some other mentions of this particular James WRIGHT in other books preserved at Google books, he seems to have been involved in some church controversies at that time.
