A reprint of Birnie's 1606 treatise, edited by advocate and antiquary William Barclay Turnbull (1811-1863). Turnbull was soon to found The Abbotsford Club, a text publication society dedicated to reprinting medieval and early modern texts, much like this one. This copy was presented by Turnbull to author and fellow antiquarian Allan Cunningham (1784-1842).
