At the end of an 8-page sermon by Christopher Love's A sermon on that article of our creed, of Christ descending into Hell which is undated, but a chapbook for all its subject matter, appears the tell- tale statement 'If you do not please to buy this little book, read it gratis, keep it clean and return it when called for'. But Christopher Love seems to have been a gangrel character.

    Robert and Andrew Foulis Printers to the University Within the College 1746-75
    Son of Andrew Faulls and Marion Patterson, and younger brother of Robert Foulis, he was born 23 November 1712. Intended for the ministry he attended Glasgow University. While there he was employed as an instructor in modern languages, and later until 1838 also in the teaching of Greek, Latin and Philosophy. In 1738 both brothers went to Glasgow and the continent. During their travels they bought books which they sold at a profit in London on their return. Robert then became a bookseller 1740-47, was made University Printer in 1741 and published books, which were printed for him by Robert Urie. In 1742 he set up his own press using the types cut by Wilson & Baine. The quality of types and typography and the scholarliness of the editions soon made the press famous throughout Europe. In 1746 Andrew joined the firm. He took a share of the task of running the shop, and was the firms auctioneer. During Robert's absence on the continent he also ran the printinng press. The firm also owned a bindery. On 18 September 1775 Andrew died of apoplexy. His death was a great shock to Robert. He went to London to sell his art collection by auction, but they fetched less than he hoped. He returned to Edinburgh, and was on the point of returning to Glasgow when he too died suddenly 2 June 1776.

    Son of Robert Foulis by his second wife, Euphan Butcher, he was christened on 6th December 1755. He inherited the business of Robert and Andrew Foulis. He found it in financial chaos from which it never really recovered, mostly because of the large losses from the Academy. At his death Robert left debts of £6,500 and a reputation as one of the best printers in Europe. Glasgow University made his son University Printer, but he was not able to print like his father. Eventually in 1795 they removed him from office. He moved to Edinburgh in 1798. Eventually he gave up printing completely and died in The Poor House in Edinburgh in 1829.

    Robert Foulis, the eldest son of Andrew Faulls and Marion Patterson, was born in Glasgow 20 April 1707. Apprenticed to a barber for seven years, afterwards he set up as a Master Barber and practice this trade until 1738. He attended classes at Glasgow University from 1730, enrolling in the course taught by Francis Hutcheson, Professor of Moral Philosophy in that year, and also attended classes in Latin and Greek literature. Hutcheson employ'd him in assisting young Gentlemen in the study of Moral Philosophy. In 1738 both brothers went to Glasgow and the continent. During their travels they bought books which they sold at a profit in London on their return. Robert then became a bookseller 1740-47, was made University Printer in 1741 and published books, which were printed for him by Robert Urie. In 1742 he set up his own press using the types cut by Wilson & Baine. The quality of types and typography and the scholarliness of the editions soon made the press famous throughout Europe. In 1742 too he married his first wife, Elizabeth Moor, sister of Professor Moor. She died in 1750 having borne him five daughters. In 1746 his brother Andrew joined the firm. Robert married as his second wife Euphan Butcher, and on 6 December 1755, their son Andrew Foulis was christened. In 1755 the Brothers won a silver nedal offered by The Select Society in Edinburgh for the finest book of not fewer than ten sheets. Their winning book was a small folio edition of Callimachus. In the following year they again won the medal for the third editon of Horace, and for the folio edition of the Iliad. From about 1738 or 1739 the idea of setting up an Academy of Fine Art was in Robert Foulis mind. He founded an institution to include instruction and practice in painting, drawing, engraving and modelling. Whatever its artistic success it was a commercial failure. On 18 September 1775 Andrew died of apoplexy. His death was a great shock to Robert. He went to London to sell his art collection by auction, but they fetched less than he hoped. He returned to Edinburgh, and was on the point of returning to Glasgow when he too died suddenly 2 June 1776. Will of Robert's second wife Eupham Butcher relict [!] registered 20 March 1775. Will of Robert and Andrew Foulis printers to the University of Glasgow registered 8 October 1777. Robert's only son by his second wife, Andrew Foulis, inherited the business.

    This is probably the Mr Fraser 'who had been manager of a small paper-mill belonging to Mr Adrian Watkins, who held the patents of King's Printer and Stationer'. He persuaded Guthrie and Arbuthnot to erect a papermill with five vats at Polton. The feu-charter and water-rights were granted by Calderwood of Polton in 1768. Through the inexperience of partners in the business the result was a fiasco, Guthrie and Arbuthnot became bankrupt in 1772 and the mill was rouped in 1774. The whole transaction involved the great banking house of Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo in a considerable financial loss. In the Edin DirAppendix 1773.

In 1820 it was christened King Street in honour of George IV. He abandoned printing about 1826 and devoted himself to a school, which was a success. He died in 1839.

Married Marion daughter of the deceased Alexander Burton farmer at Craiglockhart in Collingtoun 30 May 1756. In 1755 he published a newspaper The Dundee Weekly Intelligencer. His most important works were a folio edition of Ostervald's Bible with engravings which he issued in parts, as he afterwards did an edition of the works of Ambrose Phillips. Millar says these were printed in Holland, but that seems highly unlikely. He printed at least three chapbooks, A short account of the behaviour of William Pickworth, from his condemnation to his death in 1771; a chapbook edition of The whole prophecies of Thomas the rhymer in the West Bow 1778, and The life and prophecies of Daniel Cargill in the same year. In the collections for George Chalmers's projected history of Scottish printing (NLS Adv.MS.81.9.7 folio 168) is a letter from Thomas Colville, at that time printing in Dundee, which says that Galbraith was the first printer in Dundee and left there for Edinburgh in 1772.
