Bookplate of George Lockhart of Carnwath (1681?-1731)

Bookplate of George Lockhart of Carnwath, Jacobite politician who participated in the planning of the 1715 rising, from William Nicolson's Irish historical library (1724). After spending time in hiding on the continent, Lockhart returned to Britain to finish his memoirs, which were then hidden. They were not published until the 19th century, and have since become one of the most reliable historical sources for the period.
