Published in 1900, this biography is the finest historical work of the poet, journalist, folklorist and historian Andrew Lang (1844–1912), once described as 'the greatest bookman of his age and, after Stevenson, the last great man of letters of the old Scottish tradition'. Despite his Jacobitism, Lang offers a dispassionate, detailed portrait of Charles that aims to place historical truth above sentiment and actually favours the Old Pretender above the romantic adventurer. Facsimile reprint. No jacket.
