Williams K (2019) Review of John H. Ballantyne, ed., with contributions by Brian Smith. Shetland Documents, 1612-1637. Northern Studies, 50, pp. 139-141. https://www.ssns.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Jackson_Williams_2019_Vol_50_pp_139_141.pdf
This volume is the long-awaited third in a series of which the previous two, both co-edited by Ballantyne and Smith, were Shetland Documents, 1580-1611 (1994) and Shetland Documents, 1195-1579 (1999). The first volume, in turn, already located the genesis of the work ʻmore than ten years agoʼ (SD, 1580-1611, ix), dating the inception of this magisterial project to well over thirty years past. The wait has been well worthwhile, however, as the present volume continues the tradition inaugurated by its predecessors and will be an essential source of reference for the foreseeable future.
