Book Description

30 Aug 2012
The title of this work, which has been appearingfor a couple of years in the columns of the Scottish Highlander under the heading of Old Yet New, has been selected on the suggestion of some friends and well-wishers as more appropriate. The idea of dealing with ancient history and story by Parishes is a sound one, and has been admirably carried out by Mr William Mackay in his elaborate and carefully worked out History of Urqtihart and Glenmoriston. It might be held as overloading to deal with each Parish in the same comprehensive manner, while on the other hand one volume might be quite inadequate for a whole County. It certainly would for such a County as I nverness. I have to thank several gentlemen for information and hints; Mr Alexander Mackenzie for the handsome way in which he has printed and issued the volume; as also his son, Mr Thomas Mackenzie, for preparing such a full and accurate index. C.F.-M.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful book- origin worth noting 20 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The original from which this reproduction was made turns out to be online, placed there by the Allen County Library system (I don't know where exactly that might be) and was first owned by Alexander Ross, Riverfield, Inverness. Forgotten Books have suppressed the owner's name, stamped on the title page, but they have been unable to do anything about the handwritten number 33 below the printer's name on the title page, added in library processing. It may of course be that any copyright issues have been properly resolved.

I didn't actually know that when I bought it, and I do rather wonder about the economics of the price. The claim made in the insert title page that it was first published in 1930 is, of course, hopelessly wrong. The book dates from 1897, and is one of the basic printed texts of Highland local history, this volume notable in particular for the assault by Fraser-Mackintosh, the crofter's MP by this time, though he had been many years an estate factor, and a great collector of estate and other papers, on the creator of Ossian, James MacPherson, and the conversion by Macpherson who had, among other things, a useful sinecure, especially after American independence, when he continued to be paid for it, in what had once been West Florida, where he had spent a year or so only, and a natural son, of the estate of Raitts into a seat called Belleville and the evictions of native Gaelic speakers that entailed. This is really a miscellaneous collection of genealogical and other notes arranged to cover each of the parishes of the old Inverness-shire. Fraser Mackintosh's MS collections survive in the Scottish national archives, and his sources can be checked. He was, of course, a man of his time, and the origin of these notes is a newspaper colummn. But, in their own way, they are up there with the best of the grander historical research of his contemporaries.
