The Architectural, Landscape and Constitutional Plans of the Earl of Mar, 1700-32

By Margaret Stewart

Politics, architecture, landscapes, city designs, and infrastructure planning were the substance of the Earl of Mar's creative thinking before and after the Anglo-Scottish Union of 1707. Condemned as a traitor after he led and lost the Jacobite Rising of 1715, Mar devoted his time in exile to creating a new constitution for the United Kingdom in which England, Ireland, and Scotland would become equal partners in a federation with France for the enduring peace of Europe. Richly illustrated with Mar's magnificent designs for cities, palaces, and houses, this is the first book about this controversial figure.
