In Scotland, printing began in 1508. This lively account of the next 500 years introduces notable books and other printed literature, the people who wrote, printed, published, and sold them, and their methods. It also reveals some memorable talents and describes Scotland's remarkable dynastic contributions. Highlights include bibles; proclamations and the secret press; public and personal education; scientific, technological, and medical books; broadsides and chapbooks; figures of the Scottish Enlightenment; poetry and drama; and, a timeline of significant events and curiosities. Many of the images from rare books in National Library of Scotland collections are reprinted here for the first time.
