second word being equivalent to Wishart. But this is doubtful. 24567 WYNTOWN ( Androw of) ORIGYNALE CRONYKIL OF

Personarum utriusque sexus cognominis Leslie per Patres
Grrecii, 1692 “ This genealogical work is dedicated to Count Lesly, one of the Emperor Leopold's most famous generals, whose portrait, extremely well engraved, is prefixed to it. The book contains an account of all the illustrious persons, of both sexes, appertaining to the noble family of Lesly, as also a gencalogical table of all the families, consisting of three or four sheets (a three-fold sheet), deducing their origin from Bertholdus, the great ancestor of the Leslies, who came out of Hungary with Queen Margaret into England about the year of our Lord 1067, and from thence went into Scotland in the reign of Malcolm III." - Brydges, Censura Litteraria, Vol. V, p. 74.
For this really very rare volume, Lowndes and his editor are content to preserve their own absurdly low valuation because of Crawford's depreciatory opinion, and in the face of that of Sir Egerton Brydges, the later and better genealogist. Be that as it may, the rarity of the work is certain, for not a copy is chronicled as sold. A copy, wanting the portrait, was in Laing's
catalogue, 1819. 24581 LESLIE-GRANT (Peter) against Count Leslie : a Collection of
