This extremely rare book (which was owned by Lord Rennell of Rodd, K.B.E., C.B) is up for sale on Abebooks and eBay at US$1200. I have completely transcribed this amazing book and have been trying to get the Roxburghe Club to republish it because of its rarity but have made no progress in a couple of years.

Many of you will be aware of the 1745 Association’s plan to place a plaque in St George’s Gardens, London. The plaque is to honour the memory of 17 men of Prince Charles’ army who were put to death on Kennington Common in 1746.
Many of you will know of and some will have met Arran Johnston of the Prestonpans Heritage Trust. Arran plays a very convincing Prince Charles Edward on many occasions and recently sent me this message. Hit the link and see what you think
Hope you’re well and that you enjoyed your travels!
In case you are interested, I’m working with a team creating a new independent feature film charting the Prince’s campaign from France to Derby, focussing on his relationships with O’Sullivan and Murray and how the power balance began to shift within the high command as the march progressed. I’ve co-written the script and am also taking the role of BPC in the production.
We’re zealously trying to raise funds at the moment, and have a crowd-funding campaign running through February to help make it a reality:
Maggie Craig has already made a generous contribution, and there are reward options for donations of all sizes (including DVDs, signed film stills, premier tickets etc). If you could help us to spread the word it would be much appreciated – we’re determined to do this story justice!
I also have this letter from Ian Peter MacDonald of Lyon and Turnbull
I enjoyed our chat this afternoon and hope you have a good time in that London town.
As we discussed I would like to make members of the 1745 Association aware of the talk by Prof Hugh Cheape at the Caledonian Club on the 25th February entitled “Being a Jacobite and showing your allegiance – This is the time the prophecy has been proven: recollecting the 1715”. I have attached a flyer for this event.
It should be a fascinating presentation from an enormously knowledgeable man, who has written various books and curated various relevant exhibitions in his time at The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
Please can you pass this on to the Association so that they are aware of the talk and those interested can book to come along..
I have attached below a link through to the webpage for our own Jacobite sale in May. We would be delighted to hear from any parties who may wish to buy or sell Jacobite artefacts in this sale.
with much best wishes

I have a letter from Mr James Gilmartin who informs me that he is interested in selling the following books
The History of the Rebellion1745 and 1746 by Andrew Henderson. The date on the fly leaf is 1748
Mr Gilmartin says that this book “came into my possession recently. It was given to me to enquire into by a friend who’s father it belonged to who rescued it from an ignoble grave in a council tip.”
The other book is named “The Cochrane Correspondence 1745 -6” outlining the situation in the lowlands around Glasgow at the time of the rebellion with facsimile letters to and from the main characters.
Mr Gilmartin is not a member of the association and although I have no reason to doubt what he says neither I nor the association take any responsibility for the outcome of any dealings you may have with him.
Mr Gilmartin’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
He indicated to me that he would be happy to negotiate around the £300.00 mark for both books
