The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland studies the historical artefacts of Scotland. The society began publishing the proceedings of their meetings in 1851 in a journal entitled Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
In the report covering the years 1904 and 1905, the Society recorded the purchase of the harp called Queen Mary, the concerns around its purchase, and also remarked upon the work of Robert Bruce Armstrong, a Fellow of the Society who published The Highland and Irish Harp in 1904.
The window on this page contains the relevant pages of the report. For the unabridged report for the two years, comprising nearly 600 pages, please follow this link Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries, 1905 where it is hosted by www.archive.org.
The earlier report, containing a full description of both this harp and the Lamont Harp was published in the Society's Report from 1881.
