Additional Product Information
Kinloss Abbey in Moray was established by King David I in 1150 or 1151.
The abbey was destroyed by fire in the mid 13th century and rebuilt in Gothic style around 1269.
In 1643 Kinloss was sold to Alexander Brodie of Lethan. Brodie made a quick profit from the sale, for in 1650 he sold stones from Kinloss to Cromwell's army, who used them to build Inverness Citadel.
The monument is of national importance as representing the remains of a Cistercian abbey whose history is well documented.
A sound edition some bruising and light stains to the red bevelled-edged cover boards. Gilt vignette and titles remain bright. Inside pages are bright and clean throughout. There is a previous owner name in ink on the inside end-paper.
