Colin Fitzgerald pulls the antler of a stag and raises his spear to kill it. Other huntsmen rush to the aid of the fallen king. Alexander (1241-86) may have survived this episode, but he died aged 44 falling from a horse. His heir was his granddaughter, Margaret, Maid of Norway, but she died before she could be crowned, leaving the throne of Scotland to John Balliol.

[Anon., British, n.d., c.1820s.]
Lithographic copy of a charter granted by King Malcolm III of Scotland; broadside, hand colouring to crest, sheet 370 x 265mm. 14½ x 10½". Handling creases; bodycolour a little smudged. Glued onto a scrap album page, with tissue guard.
The single page grant of land to one of his Barons by the king of Scotland was apparently discovered c.1799 in an old oak chest in the church at Dumbarton, central Scotland. A very unusual piece of Scottish historical ephemera. Macbeth (immortalised by Shakespeare) murdered Duncan to claim the Scottish throne for himself. Malcolm eldest son of Duncan was installed as ruler of Perth and Fife by a combined army of English, Norse and lowland Scots. In 1057 Macbeth was killed by Malcolm in battle at Lumphanan in Mar, Aberdeenshire. This tale was reported in "the Mirror" of literature, amusement, and instruction, in 1839.

Nichol Lithog.
Edinburgh, Published by J. Cullen, Drummond Street [n.d., c.1840.]
Lithograph with some hand colour. Sheet 285 x 445mm (11¼ x 17½").
A satire of the opposition to the Veto Act of 1834, which gave congregations a veto over a patron-presented minister if a majority objected, approved by the Church of Scotland. The same year the patron of Auchterarder, the Earl of Kinnoull, presented Robert Young to the parish. After hearing him preach, the heads of family vetoed him. He appealed but the Assembly of 1835 upheld the veto, but in 1838 the Court of Session found in Young's favour, making the Veto Act null and void. The case then went to the House of Lords, who sided with the Court of Session against the Kirk.

[n.d. c.1845.]
Pair of very fine coloured lithographs. Sheet 280 x 229mm. 11 x 11¾". Cut and laid on separate album pages.
The Covenanters were a Scottish Presbyterian movement that played an important part in the history of Scotland, opposing the reintroduction of episcopacy by Charles II. Facing persecution they started holding 'conventicles', outdoor meetings and services, far from snooping government officials. Despite the romance in these prints, these meetings were dangerous: Covenanters were often shot on sight, or captured to be hanged or staked out in the Solway Firth to drown.
