    Alexander Donaldson was the younger son of James Donaldson, weaver and Treasurer of the City (died 1754), and Elizabeth Weir (died 1768). He and his elder brother owned a bookseller's shop at the corner of Arundel Street in the Strand in London, where they sold books printed in Scotland in defiance of the London book trade. The partnership ended on 24 July 1773, when Alexander moved to 48 St Paul's Churchyard, John remaining at the old address. Alexander opened his bookselling shop in Edinburgh in 1748. On 29 August 1750 he was made a Burgess and Guild Brother of Edinburgh. His marriage with Anna Marshall took place on 10 January 1751, their only surviving son was James Donaldson, who inherited the Edinburgh side of the business. Moved to ... above Royal Bank now possest by Mr M'Dowal Edinburgh Evening Courant 6 May 1758; In 1758 he joined the printing firm of Sands Murray & Cochran, and in August 1760 opened his own printing office in partnership with the printer William Reid. He ended the partnership in 1765. In 1769 he sued William Reid. The resulting Session Papers give much interesting detail on current printing-house practices. There is a set of the papers in the National Library of Scotland. They comprise The Petition of Alexander Donaldson bookseller in Edinburgh 28 February 1769; Answers for John Reid printerin Edinburgh to the Petition of Alexander Donaldson 25 April 1769; The Petition of John Reid printer in Edinburgh 20 July 1769; Answers for Alexander Donaldson to the Petition of John Reid 8 October 1769. In 1773, James Hinton, bookseller of London sued Alexander Donaldson and John Wood in Edinburgh, and John Meurose bookseller in Kilmarnock with infringing the copyright on a number of titles which were claimed as their sole property by the London booksellers. Donaldson took the case to the House of Lords and they found in his favour on 22 February 1774. His success redefined the law of literary property. James Boswell was Donaldson's advocate as he had been against Reid, and published the papers in the case. In 1789 Donaldson retired from London to Edinburgh and bought Broughton Hall. He died there on 11 March 1794, and is buried in Greyfriars Churchyard. Will registered 24 April 1794 'formerly bookseller in London afterwards residing in Edinburgh'. Apprentice: James Thomson 11 June 1795.

Grieved by what he regarded as Sabbath desecration in the custom of Stirling people visiting Cambuskenneth Abbey on the Lord's day, he wrote a leaflet. An edition of ten thousand copies of the tract, entitled 'The Sabbath' was exhausted within a month, and so ready and spontaneous was the welcome to this and later publications that Mr Drummond was persuaded to devote all his energies to the publication of pamphlets. From this humble beginning has grown the Stirling Tract Enterprise. the great bulk of his publications issued from the Stirling Observer Press.'
