‘Scottish Chiefs’ (1840)

This is a rather battered copy of ‘Scottish Chiefs,’ but the illustrations within are great and will be uploaded along with their respective chapters, when I get round to it. I think these books will make for a really interesting read and I was surprised to see it was authored by a English female historian, Jane Porter (1776-1850). I look forward to getting round to this publication.
