Written by Frank Adam in 1896, and titled 'What is my Tartan? Or The Clans of Scotland, With Their Septs and Dependents', this was one of the first successful attempts to identify and list not only families and their tartan, but - the septs or dependent families associated with those great clans. In this enormously influential work, he discussed the origins of Highland garb, the rise and fall of the clan system, and the antiquity of tartan itself. But, most important, he listed the Highland clans alphabetically, with their arms and what he considered the origin of the chief. He then continued with a list of families connected or affiliated to other clans, and he included badges, clan pipe music, slogans, and other essential information. Today, it remains a useful guide, particularly for those who wish to find where the first listing of septs occurs.
