Debrett's Peerage & Baronetage is the only up-to-date printed reference guide to the United Kingdom's titled families: the hereditary peers, life peers and peeresses, and baronets, and their descendants who form the fascinating tapestry of the peerage.

Produced in two volumes like the first ever 1769 edition, and encased in a slipcase, this very special anniversary edition is the 150th, and will be published to coincide with Debrett's 250th anniversary in 2019. In addition to comprehensive coverage of Britain's peerage and baronetage, it also contains information relating to: The Royal Family Coats of Arms Principal British Commonwealth Orders Courtesy titles Forms of address Extinct, dormant, abeyant and disclaimed titles. Special features for this anniversary edition include: A full name index of all living persons named in the peerage and baronetage (about 140,000 names), together with the names of fathers-in-law both living and deceased - a huge help for genealogists and general readers alike.
