Known as ‘The Chepman and Myllar Prints’ they were produced in or about 1508 on Scotland’s first printing press, established in Edinburgh in what is now the Cowgate.

Chepman, an Edinburgh merchant, provided the money. Myllar, an Edinburgh bookseller who had previously been involved with printing in France, brought with him experience in the book trade.

A series of events are lined up across Scotland to mark the anniversary of the first production by this partnership with events organised in colaboration between NLS, the Scottish Printing and Archival Trust and the Scottish Print Employers’ Federation.

“NLS is delighted to be taking part in the celebrations for this important event,” said NLS Director of Collections Development, Cate Newton. “As Scotland’s National Library, the first printed Scottish book is perhaps the single most significant item in our collections and I hope as many people as possible will come along to have a look at it.”
