Scottish Printed Books
1508 - 2008
This lively account of the first 500 years of printing in Scotland introduces notable books and other printed literature, the people who wrote, printed, published, and sold them, and the methods by which they were produced. It also reveals some memorable talents and describes Scotland’s remarkable dynastic contributions to the British and international book trades. Many of the images, from rare volumes in the National Library of Scotland, are reproduced for the first time.
