Book Description
Two-volume set printed for the Society by W. Blackwood and Sons & rebound in dark blue cloth with gilt titles to the spines; frontis. plate to volume one shows facsimile of F. Dalrymple's handwriting; frontis. portrait of Queen Mary to volume two; Cody's 26-page introduction to front of vol.1 includes his method of editing in which he explains his aim to reproduce, as exactly as possible, the actual 16th century Scottish text of Father Dalrymple. De origine, moribus, et rebus gestis Scotorum libri decem (Concerning the origin, customs, and actions of the Scots in ten books) was written by the Scottish Roman Catholic bishop and historian John Leslie (1527–1596). Leslie was a friend and ambassador to Mary I of Scotland (Mary, Queen of Scots). The book, written originally in Latin, contains a history and description of Scotland from the (mythical) reign of Fergus I of Scotland in the 4th century BC, to Leslie’s current day and the reign of Mary. Each volume has notes to the books within at the rear.
