CRAWFURD, GEORGE

A GENEALOGICAL HISTORY OF THE ROYAL AND ILLUSTRIOUS FAMILY OF THE STEWARTS

Edinburgh, James Watson, 1710. First Edition, folio, two parts in one, lacking the final 'alphabetical index' leaf otherwise complete, full contemporary blind-panelled calf, re-backed. The copy of Colonel John Ferrier Hamilton of Cairnhill, Scotland, with his bookplate and signature. There are also early 18th century unidentified signatures of a member of the Stewart family; CRAWFURD, GEORGE - THE LIVES AND CHARACTERS OF THE OFFICERS OF THE CROWN AND OF THE STATE IN SCOTLAND: from the Beginning of the Reign of King David I. to the Union of the Two Kingdoms. Edinburgh, Robert Fleming, 1726. First edition, folio, full contemporary blind-panelled calf, rubbed, wear to extremities, some internal damp-staining to top margin. The title states this is 'Vol I', however, a second volume was never written nor published, the author having decided against this, which he acknowledges at the end of the Preface. Complete; [JACOBITE INTEREST] - A NARRATIVE OF CHARLES PRINCE OF WALES' EXPEDITION TO SCOTLAND IN THE YEAR 1745 By James Maxwell of Kirkconnnell. Edinburgh, [The Maitland Club], 1841. First edition thus, small 4to, a fine copy, later quarter calf with marbled boards. Contemporary presentation inscription from Alexander Macdonald, a member of the Maitland Club, to Charles K[irkpatrick] Sharpe, the Scottish antiquary and artist. The Maitland Club was a Scottish historical and literary society, founded in 1828 to edit and publish early Scottish texts. Since the distribution of publications was usually limited to members, a typical print run consisted of between 70 and 100 copies - so this example is now rare (3)
