The full title of this work is ... "Clanship and the Clans, Containing a Popular Sketch of the Constitution and Tranditions of the Clans of Scotland; with Notice of the Highland Garb and Arms, and a Table of the Clans, Giving Details of Name, Deat, Badge, Chief, &c."
This unusual work give us a look into the state of the Highland clans and clan system as it was in the late high Victorian era. Over the course of some fifty years from the visit of King George IV to those of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in the 1830s and '40s, the Norse-Celtic culture of the Scottish Highlands had grown in popularity, luring England and American tourists to Caledonia during the months of August and September.
Highland chiefs and their clan folk had long since ceased to be a threat to the state, and the culture of the Highlands now assumed a romantic rural character beloved by the more urban Victorians.
This work gives a detailed look at the state of the clans, chiefs and Highland culture at this high tide of the 19th century enthusiasm.
