Special and Named Printed Collections in the National Library of Scotland

JOLLY COLLECTION

In 1958 the Theological College of the Episcopal Church in Scotland deposited on long-term loan a large part of the library of Alexander Jolly (1756-1838), Episcopal Bishop of Moray. This deposit was converted into a gift in 1970, and the remaining books from Jolly’s library were added to it. There are 2,976 volumes mostly on theological subjects, spiritual and devotional literature (especially Anglican), dating from the 16th to the 19th century, but also including two incunables printed at Strassburg. A number of volumes have annotations in Jolly’s hand.

Shelfmark: Jolly.
