Chapter Summary

This bibliography of the book The Lordship of Isles presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the study of the modern historiography of the Lordship of Isles takes as its starting-point Patrick Fraser Tytler's History of Scotland, published in stages from 1828 to 1843. The book discussesdiscusses that Tytler's method, which was grounded in his training as a lawyer, saw the exposure of his historical sources to rigorous and sceptical analysis, and saw the completion of an intellectual shift that had begun in the mid eighteenth century from an historiographical tradition where interpretation was based on modern assumptions coloured by the authors' personal prejudices to one where interpretation was instead found on the evidence of contemporary witnesses.

Keywords: Lordship of Isles; Tytler's method
