It is presumed that this work will be found the most accurate, comprehensive, and concise, which has hitherto appeared upon the subject; an unprecedented mass of information having been obtained from the highest sources. The lineage of almost every house is deduced from the earliest era, and the genealogical details are interspersed with many interesting anecdotes of the various families. The Baronets of Scotland and Ireland, with their armorial bearings, &c. form a new feature in this edition; and an Essay upon the origin of titles of honour in England, with Engravings of the various orders of nobility and knighthood, considerably augment the interest of the whole.
