"One of the most elusive of all the Highland histories, Collectanea reprints many primary documents--much of the work done by William Skene, Donald Gregory, and other lions of 19th-century Scottish historical writing. Included are: Genealogies of the Highland Clans, extracted from ancient Gaelic manuscripts; Documents illustrative of the history of Clan Gregor; Documents connected with the succession of the estate of William MacLeod of Dunvegan (d. 1553); Documents illustrative of the history of Icolmkill and the Bishoprick of the Isles; Documents illustrative of the custom of fosterage in the Highlands; and much more. There are extracts from the Norse sagas relating to the Highlands, as well as a wealth of family-related material. At the end is Notices of the Highland dress and armour, which the Iona Club collected, and which provides original references to Highland clothing from the Romans and the Norse on. This is truly a treasure trove of much otherwise unobtainable information"--Container
