Εξώφυλλο
Heritage Books, 2020 - 512 σελίδες

This important work of Scottish genealogy was originally published in 1890 in a limited edition of only one hundred privately circulated copies. The text is divided into eleven chapters, detailing the ancestry of eleven venerable Scottish families: the Allan family, the Dalrymple family of Waterside, the Halkerston family of Halkerston Beath, the Hardy family, the Liston family, the McCall family, the Orr family, the Ranken family of Colden, the Scott family of Thirlestane, the Wilkie family of Rathobyres and the Young family. For each family, the author presents a plethora of archival information including numerous illustrative documents, sixteen pedigree sheets, portraits, illustrations of seals and coat of arms, traditions, anecdotes, tombstone inscriptions and extensive biographical material. The original index has been retained for this edition. It is with great pleasure that Heritage Books, Inc. makes this text once again available to today's family researchers and scholars of Scottish history.

Σελίδα xiv - There are some persons," writes Mr. LOWER, in his " Curiosities of Heraldry " (p. 292), " who cannot discriminate between the taste for pedigree" (or genealogy) "and the pride of ancestry. Now these two feelings, though they often combine in one individual, have no necessary connection with each other. Man is said to be a hunting animal. Some hunt foxes ; others for fame or fortune. Others hunt in the intellectual field; some for the arcana of Nature and of mind; some for the roots of words, or the...
