Octavo. 13 x 20 cm. Illustrated with numerous plates. Still considered a useful history, though Strickland was notably less objective a writer than modern historians. Ex libris James C. Spence, who, deducing from the date he penciled with his signature and the heraldic bookplate in this set, was the Scottish surgeon appointed surgeon in ordinary to the queen of Scotland in 1867 and is the Spence for whom the Tail of Spence (anatomical term) is named.
