About this title


A reference classic for nearly 200 years, Debrett's Peerage and Baronetage 2000 is the 146th edition and has been completely revised and updated since the previous edition was published in 1995. Packed with useful, hard-to-find information, this volume lists all members of the British Royal Family, all members of the peerage and baronetage, their collateral branches, and their coat of arms. Ideal for genealogical, historical, and social research, this volume is a convenient, reliable, fun-to-browse guide to Britain's titled families that will be used and appreciated.

From Library Journal:

First published in 1769 and revised every five years, this is a comprehensive guide to titled nobility in the United Kingdom. More than 2500 heraldic entries offer brief, biographical data and list descendants and siblings, collateral branches, and predecessors. The addition of adopted children and those born out of wedlock, a relatively new phenomenon, ensures a more inclusive scope. Illustrations in black and white include coats of arms, medals, insignia, royal crowns, and coronets. The arrangement is in chapters, with two main sections, compiled alphabetically, supplying information on peerage and baronetage. A third chapter addresses the royal family in depth. In addition, the volume provides tables of precedence, a guide to the wearing of orders, articles on the Orders of Knighthood and Chivalry and the Order of Successions, among others, and a record of extinct, dormant, aberrant, and disclaimed titles. The work records changes since 1995 in the form of births, deaths, and marriages. For example, the deaths of 109 hereditary and 78 life peers have caused 13 titles to become dormant or extinct, while 210 replacements have been created. A reference classic similar to John Bernard Burke's Burke's Peerage & Baronetage (Fitzroy Dearborn, 1999) and useful as a record of British aristocracy, this pricey source will appeal only to select individuals. Still, it is ideal for genealogical, historical, and social research.DMarilyn Rosenthal, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY
