The Scottish Nation; or the surnames, families, literature, honours, and biographical history of the people of Scotland: Volume M - William Anderson. 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. The Scottish Nation is 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. Over 95 "M" surnames. (1876, 1995), 2013, 8½x11, paper, 299 pp.
