‘Sketches of Early Scotch History’ (1861)

This isn’t as random a pick as the books up until now have been. Cosmo Innes is cited often and is apparently adored by Andrew MacGeorge in his ‘Old Glasgow‘ (1880) so I thought I’d provide the context of many of the quotes and information provided by MacGeorge. Also, unlike the other books already uploaded, I have previously read this one and found it fairly heavy on the ecclesiastical history of Scotland but there are plenty of gems to find.
