Special and Named Printed Collections in the National Library of Scotland

COX COLLECTION

This collection consists of c. 1170 items on theological subjects, many of which are composite volumes of pamphlets, with the emphasis on the 19th-century pamphlet wars on temperance and Lordıs Day observance, though there are also some 17th-century volumes on the Sabbath controversy and works on dogmatic theology. It was bequeathed to the Faculty by Robert Cox WS (1810-72), one-time apprentice to George Combe, and author of Sabbath Laws and Sabbath Duties (1853) and other works.

Shelfmark: Cox.
