Thomas Oliver (1776-1853), apprentice compositor to James Robertson, printer, Horsewynd, was a witness at the trial of Walter Berry and James Robertson for publishing a seditious libel in 1792; In 1801 he took George Boyd (died 1843) into partnership.

They also printed and sold abridged histories in fancy covers and songbooks. The juvenile series up to twopence, at least, were numbered, and some of the twopenny ones have lists of the series on the back cover. Unfortunately nothing under sixpence was listed under title in the firms wholesale catalogues until 1827. From that date the twopenny series is listed. The threepeny series was discontinued in 1818, the fourpenny in 1835, and all cease after 1841. The archives of Oliver and Boyd are on deposit in the National Library of Scotland.

    A dancing-master at Dunfermline, while there he published in 1734 a Collection of minuets for the violin and bass viol. He went to Edinburgh in 1736 and was a highly successsful, singer, composer and concert promoter. While in Edinburgh he published, in 1840, a Curious Collection of Scots Songs, and composed some under his own name and some under the name of David Rizzio. In 1741 he moved to London. Alan Ramsay published a farewell Epistle to James Oswald in the Scots Magazine of October 1741. At first he seems to have worked as a composer for the London music publisher, John Simpson, but at Simpson's death he commenced music publisher himself. A society of Scotsmen called the Temple of Apollo met at his house. He is said to have been involved in the musical education of George III, which may account for his appointment as Chamber Composer to the King in the coronation honours list in 1761. His collections of Scots songs a Curious Collection of Scots Songs and the Caledonian Pocket Companion London, 1745-59 were particularly influential, Burns drawinglargely, particularly from the latter for the tunes for his songs. He was a very successful composer of orchestral and operatic pieces, but most are anonymous or pseudonymous. In London he wrote under the pseudonyms Dottel Figlio and Giuseppe St Martin. He died late in 1768 or early 1769, his death being recorded in the Gentleman's Magazine for 2 January 1769.
