Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ... PREFACE. So far as the contents of the present volume are concerned, prefatory observations may be dispensed with, as anything which the editor deemed necessary to be said, in the way of explanation or comment, has been embodied in footnotes. With regard to future publications, however, an intimation has to be made of an addition to the series, which will be gratifying to those interested in Glasgow history. The protocol books originally intended to be published down to the year 1600 were (1) William Hegait's three volumes embracing the period 1547-76; (2) Henry Gibson's three volumes 1555-76 and 1598-1603; (3) Archibald Hegait's three volumes 1581-1604; (4) John Kos's volume 1588-9; and (5) George Huchesone's volume 1587-1605. It has just been ascertained that there is preserved in the General Register House, Edinburgh, a protocol book relating to Glasgow properties, embracing the period 1530-9, and thus of a date considerably earlier than the oldest in the above list. The protocol book referred to is that of Michael Fleming, designated in his docquets "clerk in the diocese of Glasgow, notary public by apostolic and imperial authority." One or two of Fleming's instruments are printed in Liber Collegii Nostre Domine; but it is believed that the book itself has hitherto escaped the notice of local investigators. Arrangements are now being made with the view of obtaining abstracts of Fleming's protocols, and it is hoped that these, together with the remainder of William Hegait's protocols, will be comprised in the next printed volume.
