Title

Hector Boece's Scotorum historiae (1575). Ff. 285v-286r

Description

This History of the Scottish people by Hector Boece, which reconstructs the political and ecclesiastical history of Scotland up to 1438, was one of the first to be published. It was read all over Europe, including Spain, with great success. The note on the margin of a reader from the Monastery of San Benito, Valladolid ("el Mº de Melros es necesº saber si era de Benitos, consta en muchas ptes de la Corónica."), reveals the interest with which it was received and how, despite the censors' preventions, a Spanish reader could perceive a close connection with the historical past of the Scottish peoples.
