Binding (Scottish nobility)

Contempory blind tooled half calf over paper covered boards. The spine divided in six tooled panels by five raised and gilt bands with gilt titles in the second compartment. The leather tooled and gilt ruled along the edges.

The upper compartment of the spine bears, in gilt, the crest of arms of the clan of Maconochie of Meadowbank, while on the inner frontboard there is the armorial bookplate of the clan of Maclean of Ardgour. So the book obviously was passed on from one noble Scottish family to another, though we do not know how. If you have any information, then please let us know.
