    William Miller was a typefounder in Glasgow, at least from 1800-1808. He was married to Margaret Duff, and they had children, Mary 7 June 1800; William 7 January and 1803, and Robert 21 July 1807. In December 1808, he married Ellison Morison, daughter of Daniel Morison, Comptroller of Customs at Glasgow. In 1809 the firm of William Miller & Co opened in Edinburgh.William Miller was at 83 Nicholson Street Edin Dir 1810; Burgess of Edinburgh 28 October 1820 Walter Richard is given for the same address 1833-35 in the trade directory Edin Dir, and as of William Miller & Co in the main sequence. The typefoundry started in Reikie's Court, a back court off Nicolson Street. It expanded to take in the surrounding buildings including a chapel, a school, a lying-in hospital and finally a street was roofed over to make a woodworking shop. The firm was a success from the beginning, and cut the special type for Bradshaw's railway guides. In the 1840s an Old Style type was cut for the firm, shortly followed by a series of ornaments to go with it. This became the most influential type of its day, the original of all the Scotch Romans. An American punch-cutter called Alexander Phemister claimed to have cut this face. He was apprenticed to the Edinburgh punch-cutter, William Grandison. The Edinburgh type-foundries at this time did not employ their own punch-cutters. His account of the matter mentions Duncan Sinclair as being present. Mr Sinclair was the head of a rival firm, so there must at least be considerable doubt as to whether it was the famous old style that he cut. William Miller was very interested in type-casting machines, and designed his own with some success. When the firm closed in 1951, it was bought by Stephenson Blake. They attempted to market Old Style, but soon gave up because of problems with the machines. They have a few sets of punches and matrices. The remainder were disposed of as scrap metal, except for one set of punches and one of matrices, which were saved by George Birkbeck and are now in The National Library of Scotland. There was a case in the Court of Session Andrew Ferris Wright of Edinburgh versus W. Miller typefounder of Nicolson Street 2nd Division Court 7 February 1812.

    Died on 22 February 1849 in his 70th year. Mr Milne belonged to a family of Milne, in the parish of Urquhart, who claimed to be related to Walter Milne, who suffered martyrdom in St Andrews in 1558. Mr Milne went to Forres about 1798 as master of the Grammar School. He subsequently started as a bookseller. I have not been able to find out when he made the transition from dominie to bookbinder, but one of his bookbindings in the National Library of Scotland has a donor's inscription of 1814, so it must have been before that date.

    John Moncur (1684-1729) was the son of Andrew Moncur, 'comoun post to the conventione of burrowis'. He was dead by 1688. John Moncur 'printer' married Geills Adam daughter of the late David Adam flesher, burgess on 20 February 1707. On 9 July in the same year he was admitted burgess 'by right of umquhile father George Moncur Burgess'. On 6 July 1718 he married a second time, Agnes Lethin widow of Edward Robertson wigmaker. Moncur first appeared as a printer in 1707, he was an important book and newspaper printer, publisher of The Scots Postman in 1709, and The Evening Post, and from 1712-1716 at least was the ordinary printer to the Town Council. In 1711 he printed an edition of A guide for the child and youth, a children's primer, a forerunner of The New England Primer which was first published in London in the middle of the seventeenth century. In 1709 he published A specimen of the types in John Moncur's Printing-house; being a Sermon on Jeremiah 50 verse 5, probably in imitation of James Watson's type specimen of 1706 which is also in the form of a sermon, and he was listed as one of the publishers of James Watson's broadside Rules and directions to be observed in printing-houses of 1721. He died in July 1729 age 45 and buried in Greyfriars Churchyard 30 of that month. His affairs seem to have been involved. His will was not registered until 23 June 1735, and his son David was still struggling to secure the last of his inheritance in 1742. Apprentices: Archibald Home 1 December 1708, Burgess 1 July 1722; John Bell, son of John Bell, apprenticed to John Moncur printer Edinburgh 1 September 1713; Peter Mathie , son of William Mathie17 January 1722 [29 November 1721 Maxted].
