Lists of Fifteenth Century Books in Edinburgh Libraries free pdf Excerpt from Lists of Fifteenth Century Books in Edinburgh Libraries The late Mr J. P. Edmond in his Presidential Address, delivered on 14th December 1905, advocated the desirability of registering all fifteenth century books in the great libraries of Scotland, and appealed to the Society to undertake the work. He had himself set the example by making a list of these books in the Signet Library, and this List the Society of Writers to the Signet printed in the year 1906. Interest in the subject was stimulated by Mr Dickson's account of the early printed treasures under his care in the Advocates' Library. The project having been considered by the Committee of the Society, it was resolved that, to begin with, an attempt should be made to obtain lists of fifteenth century books in the Edinburgh libraries. Mr Dickson, Mr Nicholson, and Mr Graham heartily entered into the scheme and undertook the lists for their respective libraries, namely, the Advocates' Library, the University Library, and the Library of the Royal College of Physicians. Mr Cowan prepared the list for the United Free Church College Library, with the assistance of the librarians, Dr Kennedy and Mr D. Laird- and Mr Eeles has noted the incunabula in the Libraries of the Theological College of the Episcopal Church and of St Mary's Cathedral. The list of the books in the Crawford Library of the Royal Observatory is compiled by the Secretary from the Catalogue which was begun by Lord Crawford, finished by Professor Copeland, and revised by Mr Edmond. The Deputy Keeper and Commissioners of the Society of Writers to the Signet kindly gave permission to reprint their List. Mr Jcnkinson and Mr Aldis rendered very great service in identifying printers and places of printing, and in otherwise solving difficulties.
