GRINDLAY COLLECTION

In 1801 an Edinburgh merchant, George Grindlay, left his library to the Royal High School, Edinburgh, where he had been a pupil; his books were subsequently presented to the Library by the Royal High School in 1964. The collection consists of 475 volumes covering a wide range of subjects, many of a practical nature, including agriculture, mathematics, accountancy and business practice, but also works of general literature and piety, and narratives of voyages of exploration and travel.

Shelfmark: Grindlay.
