This edition of the 18th century parish by parish account of Scotland has a new Introduction, an Index, and is, for the first time, grouped according to county making this a very worthwhile reprint of an incomparable source work for those interested in Scottish history.

The completion of the publication, in 1799, of The Statistical Account of Scotland proved to be a significant milestone in the history of Britain, since for the first time, it surveyed intensively the whole of Scotland. It was masterminded by Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster, who circulated a formidable list of queries to every parish minister, and collected together the replies." This volume contains information about Banffshire, Moray and Nairnshire.

A very good clean copy complete with good clean dust jacket. No writing or names. A very good copy.
