CASE OF THE RIGHT HON. ALEXANDER, EARL OF STIRLING AND DOVAN, RESPECTING HIS LORDSHIP'S TITLE TO NOVA SCOTIA, AND OTHER TERRITORIAL POSSESSIONS IN NORTH AMERICA: CONTAINING A NARRATIVE OF THE PROCEEDINGS TAKEN ON HIS LORDSHIP'S BEHALF FOR THE RESTITUTION OF THE PROPERTY, WITH OBSERVATIONS THEREON.

London: Hatchard and Son, Piccadilly, 1833. 92pp plus two folding facsimiles, as issued. Modern wrappers, lightly dusted, Good+.

King James I gave Nova Scotia to an earlier Earl of Stirling in 1621. His descendant tries to prove his claim here. The Introduction promises that this "exposition of Lord Stirling's Claims and Title" will be "singular and romantic" rather than the "dry subject" of legal title-searching.
