Excerpt from Charters and Other Writs: Illustrating the History of the Royal Burgh of Aberdeen, 1171-1804 A selection, without translations, from the charters of the burgh of Aberdeen, was printed by the Spalding Club in 1 842 but this contribution to Scottish municipal history remained without a companion for twenty-nine years. In 1871 the Burgh Records Society issued a volume of charters and other documents relating to the city of Edinburgh, and in 1872 a similar volume dealing with the burgh of Peebles. In 1880 and in 1884, the charters of Dundee and of Stirling were printed for the corporations of these burghs and in 188 3 the Ayr charters were edited for the Ayrshire and Galloway Archaeological Association. Apart from a privately printed pamphlet containing translations of the Cupar charters, no other volumes of like character have hitherto appeared in Scotland but the charters of Glasgow and of Irvine are understood to be in the press.
