39 page table of contents & 8 page preface; from the introduction: “The object of the present work is to trace the history of the territories once owned by the great Lords of the Isles, from the time of the downfall of that princely race, in the reign of James IV of Scotland, until the accession of Charles I. to the throne of Great Britain. But, for the better understanding of the subject, it appears absolutely necessary to give a brief sketch, first, of the early history of these territories; and, secondly, of the rise, progress, and fall of the potent family of the Isles.”
