A comprehensive review of the peerage and nobility of the UK, Burke's has been legendary for well over over a hundred years. I am glad to see the more recent editions grant prominence to the Scottish Feudal Baronage as well as the Clan Chiefs. Both of these stations have been instrumental in molding the more northerly member of the United Kingdom, Scotland. The Clan Chiefs provided cohesiveness to the turbulent highlands for centuries and the Scottish Feudal Barons were the signatories of the Declaration of Arboath, which many cite as an inspiration for the American Declaration of Independence.

The Late Charles Mosley's extensive efforts (and astounding research) as Editor-in-Chief of both Editions under his hand, being : the 106th Edn. in 1999 and the 107th Edn. in 2003, proves his inexhaustible energy and irrepressible skill. These are both Classic works with comprehensive Genealogical Records and references. Considering that the last (prior) publication of 'Burke's Peerage & Baronetage' was in 1972, Mosley's recovery of nearly 30 years of backlog of events is nothing short of astounding. His literary abilities of communication are also notable in both of these works.
