    Emil Ernst Friedrich Theodor Schenck was born in Offenbach in 1811 and died in Edinburgh in 1885. He trained as lithographer and artist in Munich and Paris, and was brought, with W. Wahler, to Edinburgh by Samuel Leith [q.v.] in 1840. He gave lectures on and demon-strations of lithography to the R.S.S.A. and was awarded their gold medal for contributions to the development of lithography in Scotland. From 1848-50, he published a number of prints with Louis Joseph Ghemar 1820-75. In 1857 Schenk wrote the article on lithography for 8th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica. In 1859 the partnership with W.H. M'Farlane was dissolved, Macfarlane continuing as Schenck and M'Farlane, and Schenck setting up again as Friedrich Schenck. In 1866 he took his son Frederick into partnership, the partnership being dissolved in 1868 to allow the son to pursue an artistic career. In 1875 he retired and taught French, German and writing from his home in Castle Street until his death in 1885.

    Yester Mill, East Lothian 1694-1703
    Braid Mill near Edinburgh 1695-1703
    Nicolas Dupin and Denis Manes floated a joint stock company in 1694 with a capital of £5,000, The Society of the White-Writing and Printing Paper Manufactory of Scotland. The Committee members included George Mossman stationer. They had a warehouse at Heriot's Bridge in the Grassmarket. They asked for a monopoly of paper-making in Scotland in 1694, but this was refused on the grounds that there were already other paper mills. They ran into financial trouble perhaps exacerbated by the conduct of their Clerk, Robert Henderson who was imprisoned in the Tolbooth at Edinburgh 'for alledged imbazelling the effects belonging to the said manufactory'. He was released in May 1703 because the tacksmen brought no charge against him. The Company made a tack of the two paper-mills 17 September 1703 to George Kerr, merchant and George Livingstoune wright both of Edinburgh on condition that they retained the existing apprentices and workmen. Both mills were still working as papermills in 1714, and Yester was offered for let in working order in 1774. Waterston mentions a papermark COMPANY surmounted by a crowned thistle in two bonds of 1697, and illustrates photographs of a mark BRED / DUPIN in a deed of 1700, and BRAID in an ornamental cartouche in a deed of 17 March 1703 and YESTER in a similar cartouche in a deed of 20 June 1705.

    In June 1539 John Scot printer obtained a grant of part of a house on the North side of the Cowgate at the foot of Borthwick's Close. He was probably in Dundee in 1547, when John Scrymgeour of Glastree, Constable and Provost of Dundee was charged by the Privy Council to take him and bring him to Edinburgh Castle. Scrymgeour appeared before the Privy Council and showed 'how he had socht for Johne Scott, and could nocht find him'. He subsequently printed some books in St Andrews from 1552-55. His subsequent books give no place, and he may have returned to Edinburgh. He was certainly there in 1562, for he was imprisoned by the magistrates of Edinburgh in August of that year. His printing equipment which had been impounded was on 21 March 1564 delivered to Thomas Bassenden, but was apparently in Scot's hands again by 1568. He printed for Henry Charteris 1568-71 and probably for Bassandyne. His device was Hercules and a Centaur. He possessed some of Davidson's materials and one of his woodcuts was afterwards used by Lekpreuick.
