Small 4to (6 x 8). pp. vii; [1]; 132. Bound in 19th century half blue morocco over marbled boards with gold ruling and the title in gold on the spine. Elizabeth More ("Elizabeth Mure", "Elizabeth More", "Elizabeth Muir", "Elizabeth Mohr", "Elizabeth de la Mohr") (1320 - 1355) was the Countess of Strathearn, Countess of Athol and was the wife of Robert II, King of Scots. Elizabeth Mure (Robert's 4th cousin) was initially Robert's mistress, and all of their children were born out of wedlock.

Hay's treatise attempts to show that Robert's and Elizabeth's marriage occurred in 1334 (see page 109 where Hay states the name of the marriage officiant as Roger MacAdam). Robert sought and was granted a Papal dispensation for his marriage to Elizabeth in 1347 (a dispensation was required since Robert and Elizabeth were 4th cousins) and all of their 10 children were legitimated at this date. A scarce early Scottish history. ESTC T140711.
