Sir William Fraser's books are visually stunning collections of histories, documents, memoirs and letters relating to the leading clans and aristocratic families of Scotland. Fraser had unparalleled knowledge and unequalled access to the records of the Scottish aristocracy, and produced these books in very small numbers for the shelves of his noble patrons' libraries. Illustrated with beautiful lithographs of charters, seals and signatures, as well as mansions, castles and palaces, Sir William Fraser's books are available to a global audience at an affordable price for the very first time.
An extensive series containing the financial accounts of the kingdom of Scotland from 1264 until 1600. Giving detailed minutiae of royal finances, customs, payments, and much much more, these sources are the most prolific source for most aspects of Scottish history until the privy council records begin to survive. They are, therefore, an essential collection for any historian of Scotland, whether interested in political, ecclesiastical, social, legal or economic history, before 1600.
