Special and Named Printed Collections in the National Library of Scotland
PROTESTANT INSTITUTE COLLECTION
A selection of 571 volumes, including 50 volumes of pamphlets, from the library of the Protestant Institute of Scotland, was deposited in 1963 and subsequently purchased by the Library in 1997. It includes works on Canon law and the Church Fathers, Catholic and Protestant theology and religious controversy, and items relating to the temperance movement in the 19th century. These are mainly British publications of the 17th, the 18th and the 19th century, but include a number of continental and a few American imprints.
