Description du livre Brompton Press, London, 1997. Hardcover. État : Near Fine. Etat de la jaquette : Very Good. First Edition. 1997. 160pp. "The story of this ancient castle in Eastern Ross, for centuries home of the Chiefs of the Clan Ross, reaches back to the origins of the clan. Over the centuries the castle has grown from a simple medieval tower-house into a romantic pile with delightful neo-Gothic interiors. Now meticulously restored, Balnagown still bears witness to its great past. The Chiefs, descendants of the mighty Earls of Ross, led their clan through bitter feuds and political upheavals. Later lairds were in the forefront of the agricultural reforms which brought an end to the old clan system, while the last Ross laird, who died in 1942, is a worthy addition to the gallery of great British eccentrics." Illustrated with numerous photos by Fritz von der Schulenburg throughout. Unclipped dust jacket is in very good condition with slight creasing at the top and bottom edges, as well as a small tear on the bottom edge of the front board. The book is in excellent condition with no markings on the content. PLEASE NOTE: Heavyish book so extra may be needed for shipping to non-UK customers. Size: 12.75 "Tall.
