The Scottish Nation; or, the Historical and Genealogical Account of All Scottish Families and Surnames MACVEIGH, JAMES $4,875.00
(Three Volume set)
Vol. I has two frontispieces and the other volumes have one; the entire work is profusely illustrated with engraved portraits, text woodcuts, engraved tables of titular genealogies (the Ancient Earldoms of Scotland). 10 3/4 x 7 3/4. Bound in 3/4 burgundy calf over burgundy cloth-covered boards, gilt bands separating cloth from leather and raised bands on spine. Spine has gilt decorations and title on a black morocco label. All edges are heavy and bright gilt. Corners are bumped and the tips are worn. There is slight cracking of the joints and minor rubbing, mostly along the spine ends and extremities, although there is some rubbing to the raised bands. The hinges are reinforced with red archival tape which I believe was done later. Overall they are Very Good and quite an attractive set. Decorated end papers (typical Victorian pattern).
This is primarily a genealogy history of the Scottish people and is an extremely important set of books for anyone interested in genealogy, the history of Scotland or just learning a little about the background of their Scottish surname. Very scarce, particularly in this condition.
