BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE CONSIDERING the appalling amount of Jacobite literature, biographies of Prince Charles are surprisingly scanty in number. The following are the most important, though Mr. Langs volumes easily supersede all others: Alexander C. Ewalds The Life and Times of Prime Charles Stuart (new edition. London, 1883)- Carl L.

The Jacobite attempts to restore James III. are described in detail, from contemporary sources, in the present writers The Chevalier de St. George and the Jacobite Movements in his Favour, 1701-20 (London, 1901).

The history of Charless wife, Louise of Stolberg, is detailed in the following: Vernon Lees The Countess of Albany (London, 1884)- Alfred von Reumonts Die...
