Just published, elegantly printed in double columns, 28s. bound.
A NECESSARY COMPANION TO ALL OTHER PEERAGES.
This work comprises the whole of the Peerages of the three kingdoms which have been pus. pended or extinguished since the Conquest, particularizing the members of each family, in each generation, and bringing the lineage, in all possible cases, through either collaterals or females, down to existing houses ; thus connecting in many instances the new with the old nobility.
*.. When it is considered that the most illustrious peers of England were swept away in the devastating conflicts between the houses of York and Lancaster-in the wars of the Edwards and Henrys, and more recently, in the season of civil commotion, it is presumed that a work of this description, supplying much historical, biographical, and domestic detail, cannot fail to be considered as a great desideratum in all libraries.
