I have a copy of THE MACGREGOR TRILOGY by Nigel Tranter that I am offering here before I post to my bookshelf.  It is a 1974 edition so the pages are somewhat discolored by age but the book overall is in very good shape with no tears or staining.  Let me know if you are interested and I will post to your wishlist.
