838pp. Thick octavo [23.5 cm] Sturdy red cloth over boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine. Very good condition. The extremities are just a little bumped and rubbed. The pages are free of markings.
A book covering several thousand Scottish surnames, and a number of early personal names which did not become surnames, but nonetheless have a unique interest of their own. The work is historical and scientific in nature, with folklore and fairy tales of family and clan origins completely omitted.
