the complete set of this curious collection of Scottsh tracts dating from the 17th and 18th centuries.
includes accounts of the Western Isles and St. Kilda, Treatises on the Second Sight, Navigation of King James V round Scotland, Genealogies of the Clans, Narrative of the Massacre of Glencoe, etc. etc.
