    William Nisbet's A Golden Chain of Time was 'Printed at Edinburgh by the Heires of George Anderson, for the Company of Stationers' in 1650. A Latin edition of The Confession of Faith was printed at Glasgow by A. Anderson 'Impensis Societatis Stationariorum' in 1660, probably a similar combination, distinct from the Society of Stationers.
    Aldis 1904
  • STATIONERS, SOCIETY OF printers Edinburgh
    Edinburgh 1660-90
    This press appears to fall into two periods:- 1. The successors of Christopher Higgins. This seems to refer to the Stationers Company in London. Watson says (p.10) 'Tytler made over his part of the forfeited gift to some Stationers at London, who sent down upon us Christopher Higgins and some English servants with him ... After he died, these London Stationers appoint Patrick Ramsay, a Scots-Man to be Overseer of that House ... but the masters living at a distance, and the work coming to no account, they sold this printing office to several booksellers [probably Swintoun, Glen and Brown] at Edinburgh, who in a little time after did divide and set up distinct houses.' Arber, Stationers' registers v, xlvii, says that the Stationers Company of London 'held for some years a patent for printing in Scotland, granted by the Scotch Parliament. This Scotch Patent ... appears to have been abandoned in 1669, upon the death of Christopher Higgins, the Company's agent at Edinburgh and the stock and plant sold there for £300' ... 2. 1689-90. Watson says, p.17, that the printing house of Peter Bruce was sold 'to the Society of Stationers that had the Council-plea with Mrs Anderson: they printed several school-books neatly enough, having some very good foreign workmen. These Stationers, in a short time, sold off their shares to George Mosman, one of their number'.

    'Duncan Stevenson belonged to Argyllshire, where he was born in 1776, his father being the proprietor of the slate quarries at Ballachulish, and also owning the estate of Glenfeochan, near Oban. At his father's death he disposed of the whole estate, and with part of the proceedings joined the firm of Mundell & Doig, printers and publishers in the Royal Bank Close.' He was made a Burgess of Edinburgh 1 September 1807 and a Guild Brother 28 March 1823. He is said to have been in partnership with his cousin Alexander Stevenson W.S., son of Hugh Stevenson, Merchant of Oban who was apprenticed to John Campbell W.S., married Martha, youngest daughter of James Pollock of Campbelltown on 29 August 1811, and died 30 September 1815. He was probably the Duncan Stevenson who married Alexandrina Campbell on the 10 July 1810. Printer of The Beacon in 1821-22, he was sued for libel by James Stewart W.S. He appears at a house address in Edinburgh until 1857, but not afterwards. The overseer of the Book Department in 1831 was Charles Stewart and that of the Law Department was R. Hardie Gray's Dir 1832. See also Duncan Stevenson & Co. In 1856 he sold the printing business to William Blackwood & Sons. He retired and died on 29 August 1867, in his 92nd year. In 1870 J. Stevenson seems to be in charge of the firm. The firm continued as stereotypers and electrotypers, and later as process engravers, surviving until the 1960s. Pigot 1820 gives the firm's address as 210 High Street. John Moir is described as 'of D. Stevenson & Co' in Edin Dir 1833-35.
