    The account in Clark's of Edinburgh begins'Robert Clark, son of a Montrose solicitor, who started work in a law printer's office in Edinburgh at the age of 13, began it all. When he was 21 he took the plunge, borrowed £200, and moved into a workshop at No 13 George Street...in November 1846...The business grew until more commodious premises had to be taken over at 42 Hanover Street.' This does not tally with the facts as given in the contemporary Edinburgh Directories.

    Thomas Clark was born in 1799 and served an apprenticeship with David Brown of Edinburgh, and spent some years with the London law bookseller, Joseph Butterworth of Fleet Street, before starting as a law bookseller in Edinburgh in 1821. About 1830 the firm began to tend towards theological publishing, without abandoning law publishing altogether. Indeed the firm started to publish the monthly Law Chronicle in 1829, however it was not greatly successful, and was discontinued within five years. In 1846 the founder's nephew, another Thomas Clark (1823-1900) joined the firm, and it became T. & T. Clark. The elder Thomas Clark died at Blairgowrie 22 December 1865. The younger Thomas Clark was made a baronet in 1886. Many of the firms records are held by the National Library of Scotland (Deposits 247 and 342 and Accessions 10689, 10785 and 11268).

    Said to have been born in 1789, soon after 1800, William Collins was working as a handloom weaver in Pollockshaws, and at the age of 17 or 18 he became a clerk in John Monteith's weaving mill. In 1813, he opened a school in Campbell Street, Glasgow. He married Jane Barclay, daughter of a Paisley engineer. He became a personal friend of Thomas Chalmers, and opened a Sunday school in his house. His school and his association with Chalmers both flourished, and then suddenly in September 1819, he goes into the publishing and printing business with Thomas Chalmers younger brother Charles. The reason for this was, at least in part, that Thomas Chalmers had quarrelled with his publishers, the powerful firm of John Smith of Glasgow. The new firm accordingly was given all his new works to publish, which helped to establish them. In April 1826 Charles Chalmers left the firm. This was at the height of the book-trade bankruptcies in London. Collins bought him out with the aid of loans from his three brothers-in-law, and set himself to repay the debt. He also became a leading light of the temperance movement, drink being a massive social problem in the Scotland of that time. His relations with Dr Chalmers however became gradually more and more tempestuous, and in March or April 1846, Dr Chalmers transferred his literary interests to Oliver and Boyd. Charles Chalmers and William Collins of Chalmers & Collins Wilson Street both Burgess and Guild Brother by purchase 24 June 1823. William Collins junior married Annabella Proudfoot Glen in 1845. William Collins III was born on 6 September 1846. In the same year William Collins's, senior, wife and sister died, and he retired to Rothesay where he set up a mission, leaving the conduct of the firm to his only surviving son, William. William Collins senior died on 2 January 1853. William Collins junior of William Collins & Co house 115 Montrose Street 1847-49.

Agreed to remain with Peter Hill as shopman for one year more. Married Mary Willison, daughter of David Willison, printer in Edinburgh, 16 January 1795. Member of the Edinburgh Bookseller's Society 4 April 1796. In 1804 he took Alexander Gibson Hunter into partnership and the firm became Archibald Constable & Co. Gibson Hunter retired from the partnership in 1811 to manage his estate which he had inherited on the death of his father in the previous year. Constable then entered into partnership with Robert Cathcart. At Cathcart's request his brother-in-law Robert Cadell was included in the partnership, which was to last for ten years. Robert Cathcart however died 18 November 1812. Constable's wife died 28 October 1814. Robert Cadell married Constable's eldest daughter on 14 October 1817. She died on 16 July 1818. Cadell remained with the firm until the crash of 1826. On the 12 February 1818, Constable remarried: his wife being Charlotte, daughter of the late John Neale. As a direct result of the bankruptcy of Constable's London agents Hurst, Robinson, and a long-term effect of the system of discounted bills set up in 1814 to prevent the immediate bankruptcy of Ballantyne & Co the firm of Archibald Constable & Co stopped payment on 19 January 1826. Archibald Constablr and Robert Cadell went their separate ways, Scott choosing to stay with Cadell. The company went into receivership, but Constable had the comfort of seeing his Miscellany published and a great success. Constable died on 21 July 1827.

    Joseph Cook, son of David Cook of the 5th Regiment of the North British Militia and Jane Steel, was born at Fort George, Inverness on 10 August 1799. On 12 October 1814, Joseph Cook was apprenticed to Robert Tullis & Co as a bookbinder and stationer. After his discharge, he continued with Tullis as a journeyman. From about 1821, Tullis took over the management of the shop and bindery, of his old master Patrick Bower of St Andrews, on behalf of Bower's daughters Isabel and Janet, and appointed Cook as his shopman in St Andrews. In 1824, Tullis handed over the management of the shop to Cook, who then began business under his own name. He leased the shop until after the death of the two daughters. Subsequently, 20 July 1858, he bought the shop from the Bower Trustees for £325. On 14 April of the same year he had taken his second son George into partnership.
