Picture ID please - possibly Osprey
« on: May 20, 2022, 05:55:18 PM »
Can anyone help ID this image for me. It looks like itís from an Osprey publication - possibly one covering the Scottish events of the mid 17th C - but if so I havenít been able to work out which book.

I believe it depicts Lord Lewis Gordon and his master burner in 1646

Reverse image search only brings up a single Twitter post. Which is odd in its own way

It's definitely Angus McBride's work. Don't know about which Osprey, though.

He did a lot of work for Look and Learn magazine back in the 70s. Maybe it's from that?

It's from Highland Clansmen 1689-1746 by Stuart Reid and Angus McBride

No wonder I wasnít able to find it. I understood it to be centred on Lewis Gordon, 3rd Marquess of Huntly (c. 1626Ė1653) and was guessing it portrayed the sacking of Aberdeen in 1644. It didnít occur to me that itíd be in a book covering from 1689.

Thanks very much :)

The book has a slightly wider time scale than the title suggests.
It's a good one.

I agree, itís a great book, but with a wider date range than the title suggests, as has been mentioned.  There is also a colour plate covering Auldearn in 1645!
