Downloading “Scottish Nobility E2”

The same collection at  the National Library of Ireland that holds “Irish Nobility E1” also includes a related volume indexed as “Scottish Nobility E2.”

This text was also in the collection of the Ulster King of Arms, despite the fact that Scotland was the domain of the Lord Lyon King of Arms — perhaps this was a local reference work for Ulster’s office containing the arms of their neighbors, whom might visit Ireland or be met while traveling elsewhere in the British Isles?

This book includes references to the coronation of James the 6th in 1603, but no later kings, and thus must date from somewhere in the period of 1603-1625.

It can be downloaded using my nli_extract.pl Perl script, via these commands:

perl nli_extract.pl 000531063 1-126 4 11x14,10x14
