Sir Bernard Burke's Peerage, Baronet

AGE, KNIGHTAGE, &c., for 1886, 48TH EDITION. This Peerage and Baronetage is the only one extant which combines, in one volume, the full genealogical or past, as well as the present, account of all the Peers and Baronets of the realm. The Baronetage, incorporated with the Peerage, is complete in every detail as to the Lineage and present condition of each Baronet and his family. The Knightage has been much enlarged by the introduction of the family connections of the Knights of the several Orders of the Knights Bachelors and of the Members of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council. Precedence. This important subject has been fully dealt with, and the Lists may be relied on as authoritative. The Peers, Baronets, and Knights, and the Companions of the several Orders of Knighthood are placed according to their relative rank; and there is given a Scale of General or Social Precedence, and a List of the Maids of Honour to the Queen, with their relative Precedence. Tables of Precedence of Diplomatic Agents; Relative Rank of the Officers of the Navy

and Army; and Precedence in the Colonies, the Dominion of Canada, and the Indian Empire are also supplied. There will also be found official Lists of THE ORDER OF THE INDIAN EMPIRE, THE ROYAL ORDER OF VICTORIA AND ALBERT, THE IMPERIAL ORDER OF THE CROWN OF INDIA, THE VICTORIA CROSS, THE ALBERT MEDAL, and THE ROYAL RED CROSS. The heraldic department includes not only the engravings of the arms of both PEERS and BARONETS, but also the written blazon or descriptions. To this work is added a Key, or Comprehensive Alphabetical List, by means of which every titled personage, and many others, can be easily traced. Nearly 2,000 pages, super royal 8vo., cloth gilt. Price £1 18s.

"While most other publications of the kind form most useful indexes to the living members of the Aristocracy, Sir Bernard Burke's handsome volume is perhaps the most useful and valuable companion to the student of English History."-Times.

"The foremost place among works of reference is claimed, almost by traditional right, by Sir Bernard Burke's 'Dictionary of the Peerage and Baronetage,' which still remains the Standard Authority as to Aristocratic Lineage."-Whitehall Review.

"Constant reference to the pages of 'Burke' enables us to testify to its invariable accuracy. For completeness and comprehensiveness on all matters connected with Titles of honour it is unsurpassed."-Court Journal.

"An indispensable companion to all classes."-Illustrated London News.

Sir Bernard Burke's Landed Gentry

of Great Britain and Ireland, being a record of the Lineage, &c., of about 4,500 Families, with a description of their Arms, Crests, &c. SEVENTHI EDITION. Thoroughly Revised throughout, 1886. This edition of the Landed Gentry has been compiled from communications made by the chiefs and heads of families from their private papers, traditions and genealogies. The great aim has been to arrive at accuracy, and, in order to attain this end, every available source of information has been exhausted, and a correspondence carried on which has secured many thousands of communications from those most competent to improve and correct the work. Apocryphal statements, which had crept into former editions, have been expunged, erroneous particulars and incorrect descents discovered and omitted, and some memoirs excluded as being no longer associated with the possession of landed property. In two volumes, uniform with "The Peerage,' General Armory," &c. 1,900 pages, super royal 8vo., cloth gilt. Price £3 3s. Nearly ready.
