George Buchanan was a 16th-century Scottish historian who has been lauded as “the most profound intellectual 16th-century Scotland produced.” He was known for many historical writings, but his final major work, “History of Scotland” was his attempt to skew or change the perceived Scottish national history. The majority of the work is based on his own experience in 16th-century Scotland, as well as the history of Hector Boece and his 15th-century Scottish philosophy. Buchanan himself knew that his work would be offensive to many Scots. He said it would,

“content few and displease many”

 

The famed Lyon publisher Elzevier published a series of travel guides under the title ‘Respublica’. This work is a collection of various authors on European countries focusing on geography and historical significance. This 1630 volume covers Scotland and Ireland and includes contributions by the famed Scottish experts Buchanan and Boece (Boetius).
