Descripción Paul Harris Publishing, Edinburg, 1980. Original Black Cloth Hardback. Estado de conservación: Very Good Plus. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Very Good Plus. First Edition. 1980. 157pp. 12 colour and B&W plates in the middle of the book. "Vestiarium Scoticum was published in 1842, the work of two brothers who, by that time, were calling themselves John Sobieski Stuart and Charles Stuart. A compendious work, edited by John and illustrated by Charles, the Vestiarium was based upon a supposedly sixteenth century document and some copies of the same which the brothers claimed to have in their possesion and contained, as its most important element, descriptions and coloured drawings of dozens of tartans, many of them previously unheard of. Such a controversial publication clearly demands further study and in Scotland's Forged Tartans the man who may fairly be regarded as the father of modern tartan research, D. C. Stewart, and an American philologist, J. C. Thompson, come together to make a detailed investigation of the tartans on the one hand and the language of the "sixteenth century" document on the other, proving beyond all possible doubt that the Vestiarium and its background material are complete forgeries." Unclipped dust jacket has slight wear to edges and corners, with slight sun fading to the spine. Book has minor foxing to the top edge, and the top and bottom of the spine are slightly bumped. Otherwise in excellentd condition with no inscriptions. Size: 8.7" Tall. Nº de ref. de la librería ScotClans45
