Item Description: Heritage Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 280 x 216 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The author had already spent ten years compiling the information that went into this history when the first volume was published. Upon its completion he declared the work to be, and his contemporaries agreed, the most complete of its kind ever assembled. The rich Scottish heritage can be successfully traced thanks to the practice of bestowing hereditary surnames, many of which found a permanent record in the many charters and other public deeds which still exist today. One of the objects of this series is to not only explain the origin of these surnames but to deliver an account of the families as well as the distinguished individuals within the families that bore them. The baronies of Scotland, associated with hereditary jurisdiction, were viewed as just short of regal and as such, an account of these honors provides an account of the territorial supremacy of a name and a family. A necessary supplement to the history of families is the history of titles which are key to understanding the social and political incidents that shaped the country. Above all other aspects perhaps the greatest light can be shed upon the Scottish nation when one studies the biographies of its most distinguished natives. This series embraces a wide range of people, comprising some names not met with in history but whose skill, labor, and genius have added to the greatness of their nation. Arranged alphabetically, there is a complete account of the surnames, titles, baronies, and general biographies of Scotland. The Scottish Nation is also richly decorated with autographs, seals, genealogical and titular tables as well as an abundance of illustrations and portraits, all taken from original or authentic sources. The author also pays particular attention to the literary accomplishments in Scottish history, creating, as he says, a Bibliotheca Scottica. This series is truly a valuable collection of the antiquities, the literature, and the general and family histories of Scotland. Volume A: In the first volume comprising the A s you will find interesting, well written, and comprehensive accounts of, among many others, Dr. Arthur Abercrombie, celebrated physician of Edinburgh, along with his likeness; Sir Ralph Abercrombie, the hero of Aboukir, accompanied by an illustration of him astride his horse; the eccentric Dr. Abernathy; Dr. Adair of Bath; Dr. Adam, the great scholar, author of Roman Antiquities, and his portrait; the four Dukes of Albany who figure so prominently in the history of early Scotland, with all their portraits; and the Kings of Scotland, Alexander I, II, and III. There are over forty surnames in this volume alone. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780788402456

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Scottish Nation, Vol. 1: Or the Surnames, Families, Literature, Honours, and Biographical History of the People of Scotland The work which is now presented to the world assumes, by its comprehensively national title, that the various and diversified information it contains is so illustrative of the Scottish nation, and of the origin and constitution of modern Scottish society, as to justify the adoption for it of a designation so conspicuous. Of any other country, it is true, an account of its surnames, families, and honours, would cast little or no light over the constitution of the society existing therein. Such an account would probably tell next to nothing of the earlier races out of which society was formed, because, in the case of any other nation, whatever might elsewhere be found to illustrate that part of its history, few indications in the names now borne by individuals or families, or in its titles of honour, will be found to mark the tribes or institutions whence they sprung, or to be otherwise identified with the commencement of its national unity. This is a result to be found in Scotland alone; not uniformly, indeed, nor always without admixture of doubt, but certainly in a greater degree than in any other kingdom or state. Modern Scottish society, and Scottish nationality in its proper sense, may be said to have come into existence together. Hereditary monarchy, hereditary surnames, families, and honours, hitherto unknown among its peoples, were their common instruments for consolidation, for conservation, and for progress. To the Cumbrian, the Pict, the Scot, Norwegian, Dane, or Saxon, who, at various times and in various degrees, were spread over its soil, these distinctions were exceptional and comparatively unknown. In the early part of the twelfth century, the greater part of the country now constituting Scotland was in a state little better than that of chaos, and worse than that of anarchy.

Item Description: Heritage Books, United States, 2013. Book. Book Condition: New. 272 x 212 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The author had already spent ten years compiling the information that went into this history when the first volume was published. Upon its completion he declared the work to be, and his contemporaries agreed, the most complete of its kind ever assembled. The rich Scottish heritage can be successfully traced thanks to the practice of bestowing hereditary surnames, many of which found a permanent record in the many charters and other public deeds which still exist today. One of the objects of this series is to not only explain the origin of these surnames but to deliver an account of the families as well as the distinguished individuals within the families that bore them. The baronies of Scotland, associated with hereditary jurisdiction, were viewed as just short of regal and as such, an account of these honors provides an account of the territorial supremacy of a name and a family. A necessary supplement to the history of families is the history of titles which are key to understanding the social and political incidents that shaped the country. Above all other aspects perhaps the greatest light can be shed upon the Scottish nation when one studies the biographies of its most distinguished natives. This series embraces a wide range of people, comprising some names not met with in history but whose skill, labor, and genius have added to the greatness of their nation. Arranged alphabetically, there is a complete account of the surnames, titles, baronies, and general biographies of Scotland. The Scottish Nation is also richly decorated with autographs, seals, genealogical and titular tables as well as an abundance of illustrations and portraits, all taken from original or authentic sources. The author also pays particular attention to the literary accomplishments in Scottish history, creating, as he says, a Bibliotheca Scottica. This series is truly a valuable collection of the antiquities, the literature, and the general and family histories of Scotland. Volume C: In the third volume comprising the C s you will find interesting, well written, and comprehensive accounts. There are over fifty surnames in this volume alone.
