Since its first publication in 1826, Burke's Peerage and Baronetage has been rightly regarded as the authoritative reference book on the British aristocracy and, consequently, has become an institution in its own right. The recently published Since its first publication in 1826, Burke's Peerage and Baronetage has been rightly regarded as the authoritative reference book on the British aristocracy and, consequently, has become an institution in its own right. The recently published 106th Edition of the original Burke's is the first to be produced for more than 25 years.
Appreciative of the tradition and reputation of Burke's, editor Charles Mosley and his team of academic experts and senior genealogists have been engaged in the revision for several years--to ensure that this new edition is both accurate and complete. While adhering to its established format in listing the details of 108,000 living people (numerous of whom live in the United States and in the various countries of the British Commonwealth), the 106th Burke's incorporates some important changes that will make the new edition far easier to use. For the first time it will have a full index (of some 250 pages) for all living persons. A larger typeface with practical use of bold print and a clearer, easy-to-follow layout combine to make it much simpler to read and understand.
In addition, valuable new information is included: preliminary essays on the histories of major families and titles; articles on the principal houses and family seats; a thorough revision of all coats of arms (which have been computer enhanced for greater clarity); and details on the correct forms of address for all living individuals.
