  • MURDOCH, David blind man from Glasgow
    from Glasgow 1787
    The National Library of Scotland has four pamphlets of religious verse by David Murdoch. The saint's faith in Christ is probably the earliest. In it David Murdoch describes himself as 'a blind boy'. Only one of them is dated, and that is Zion's traveller; or, The Christian's daily walking with God, when on his journey through the wilderness to the Holy Land. That has the imprint 'Printed for David Murdoch, a blind Man from Glasgow, 1787', so it is presumably later then The saint's faith. The other two are Meditations in watches of the night and A vision. Or, hidden things revealed in a silent grove. Neither are dated or give a place of publication.

    A Burgess of Edinburgh, he was selling books as early as March 1503, and had books printed for him by Pierre Violette of Rouen in 1505-06. In September 1507, with Walter Chepman, he received letters patent from James IV allowing them to set up the first printing-press in Scotland. Myllar seems to have been the practical printer, and several of the Chepman and Myllar prints produced by the partners in 1508 have his device. His name however does not appear anywhere in The Aberdeen Breviary, which appeared in 1509-10. He used the device of miller carrying a sack up a ladder to a windmill, with the name Androu Myllar, a merchant's mark with the monogram MA and two shields with three fleurs-de-lys (France old).

    Thomas Nelson (1780-1861), born near Stirling, the son of a farmer, he worked with a London publisher in 1798, before setting himself up as a second-hand bookseller in Edinburgh. Burgess 22 November 1820. In 1835 he took his son William Nelson (1816-1887), who travelled extensively in the interest of the firm, into partnership. Five years later, another son, Thomas Nelson (1822-92), was taken into the firm, and in 1844 was given charge of the London branch, a post which he held for a year , before taking on the running of the manufacturing side of the business in 1846. In 1850 he invented the rotary press, using curved stereotypes to fit them to a cylinder, which was thereafter universally used as long as printing was done from hot metal. In 1854 he established the New York office. The firm became a Limited Liability Company in 1915. Their Hope Park premises were destroyed by fire 9 April 1878.
