Excerpt from Annals of Scottish Printing: From the Introduction of the Art 1507 in to the Beginning of the Seventeenth Century

It appears necessary to offer a few words of explanation, showing to what extent the authors of this work are respectively responsible. In 1376-8 Dr. Dickson contributed to "The Printers' Register" a series of articles under the title of "Early Scottish Typography," but failing health brought them to an abrupt termination. These articles have been incorporated with that part of the present work which extends from the commencement to the end of Chapter XX. It was Dr. Dickson's intention to use the articles in some such way as the present, and, in order to illustrate the subject, he caused photo-type blocks of facsimiles of the early printing to be prepared, and these, together with such notes as he had gathered for the continuation of the work, were placed at my disposal when I undertook to carry out this larger design.

In 1881 Dr. Dickson published a tract, entitled "Who was Scotland's First Printer?" and in 1885 a book on the same subject, under the title of "Introduction of the Art of Printing into Scotland." The ground traversed in those two books has been necessarily retraced in this work, and extracts from them find a place here; for it appeared desirable to retain Dr. Dickson's account of our earliest Scottish printers, rather than attempt to treat the subject anew.
