Illustrated card covers in Fine condition. First edition, pp 192, bibliography, index. This is very much a family history, with the main emphasis on the seventeenth century. It follows the fortunes of the Mowat family in the North-East of Scotland as they struggled to retain their lands in very difficult times. It is a story of real people having to cope with change, and gives a readable picture of the interactions between family members over a wide geographical canvas - North-East Scotland, the Northern Isles, the Edinburgh area, and France. It shows the relative ease with which people could get about, by sea especially but also by land. SCARCE.
