A scarce biography of historian and translator George Buchanan (1506-1582). Library Hub records just 2 locations, Glasgow and St. Andrews, while Worldcat adds NLS and a further 5 North American institutions. Library Hub records a series title 'Biographical History of the Scottish Reformers' which seems to be peculiar to holdings at St Andrews only.
