The chronicle of Perth; a register of remarkable occurrences, chiefly connected with that city, from the year 1210 to 1688.
Edinburgh: Printed at Edinburgh [for the Maitland Club], 1831. - 4to, pp. [6], 108, 2 engr. plates, cont. half red morocco, red cloth sides, with the bookplate of Henry Drummond, Albury Park, Surrey, a very good copy. [Terry 10] [As Maidment notes 'Although usually designated as "Mercer's Chronicle," there seems no sufficient authority for its being so denominated, as, from internal evidence, the MS. must have been written at different intervals, and by different persons. John Mercer. unquestionably appears to have been the possessor of the volume containing this chronicle, as towards the end of it a few entries, principally of deaths, occur in his hand-writing; but beyond this portion, he seems to have had no further title to authorship."] [Attributes: Hard Cover]
