Small 4to. pp. 119. Cloth backed boards. "Copied from the original manuscript in the possession of Sir Charles William Augustus Ross of Balnagown. But the original is in very bad condition, the half of one of the leaves being entirely wanting in one place, & several leaves wanting in others. It is written in a hand in the early part of the 17th century: and internal evidence proves it to have been written previous to the year 1618." From the manuscript preface. It is made up of 1. A Brief of the Chronicle of the Earls of Ross including The Genealogy of the Earls of Ross [pp. 5 - 34]; blank [pp. 35 - 46]; 2. Genealogy of the Lords of Balnagown [pp. 47 - 81]; blank [pp. 82 - 86]; Continuation of the Genealogy [pp. 87 - 97]; blank [98 - 100]; Continuation of the Genealogy [pp. 101 - 119]; blank [120 - end]. The blanks represent blank pages in the original manuscript. This appears to be the original manuscript for the edition published in 1850. A print on demand copy of this reprint is included here for comparison.
