Also on Friday 4 April, a plaque will be unveiled by Councillor Donald Wilson on the site of the former Chepman and Myllar printworks in the Cowgate at 11.00am. There will also be the chance for people to get their own souvenir of the day as the Heidelberg Roadshow - a truck bearing a working Heidelberg press - arrives in the grounds of the National Galleries of Scotland from 10am.

The display at the NLS is a taster for a major summer exhibition on the history of printing in Scotland, which opens at the library in June. NLS will also be publishing a book to coincide with the exhibition, entitled Scottish Printed Books: 1508-2008.

A new website also charts the spread of printing throughout Scotland from 1508 onwards. It includes digital versions of the first items printed in each printing press from 1508 to 1800, from Inverness to Dumfries and from Campbelltown to Berwick-Upon-Tweed. See www.nls.uk/firstscottishbooks/ for more details.
