Discussion Board > Book of Douglas

Hi there I am Tracy Douglas, daughter of Danny R. Douglas, niece of Kenneth W. Douglas, granddaughter of George G. Douglas all of Erin and Memphis, TN. My Uncle Ken was sent a Book of Douglas about our geneology, all going back to Sir James Douglas of Scottland and it has been lost through my cousin who was tragically killed; Danny D. Douglas, son of Robert Douglas. My uncle Ken can't remember who sent it to him but said it was someone up north and the rest of the family would love to see it. It is said to be a red book of standard size. If anyone knows of this book or where I can obtain a copy(s), please let me know ASAP. My email is mommyt7177@hotmail.com. TIA

Hello Tracy,

I believe the book you are referring to is the History of the House of Douglas by Herbert Maxwell. It is a two volume set originally published in 1902. I have a first edition set with the hand painted illustrations, etchings and leather binding in excellent condition for sale. The going price is $1,200 US for the original. However you can also find them on Amazon.com as an eBook for about 5 dollars a volume.
