Spurlock, R.S. (2011)
Publisher: Edinburgh University Press
Languages: English
Types: Article
Subjects: NE, DA
Alasdair Mann, the noted scholar of book culture in early modern Scotland, has suggested that a significant change had occurred in Scotland's relationship with the printed word by the late seventeenth century. This study sets out to explain how the interregnum served as a ‘watershed’ during which a consumer demand was created for popular print and how this in turn necessitated a significant increase in the production and distribution of printed material. Beginning with the sale of the press and patent of Evan Tyler to the London Stationers’ Company in 1647, the article charts the key factors that transformed Scotland's printing industry from the production of official declarations and works for foreign markets to the production of polemical texts for a Scottish audience. These developments also witnessed publication of the first serial news journal and the growth of a competitive market for up-to-date printed news. More than just an anomaly that flourished during a decade of occupation, these fundamental changes altered Scotland by introducing the large-scale consumption of chapbooks and printed ephemera, thereby initiating the nation's enduring print culture.

    • 16 In March 1648 the man running Tyler's press, John Twyn, was called before parliament to answer for printing a declaration of the Commissioners of the General Assembly. Asked on whose authority this had been done, Twyne 'declared that he had warrant from Mr Andrew Kerr, clerk to the general assembly of the church'. After producing his warrant for inspection, it was returned (NRS, PA2/24, fo. 6v.). This incident demonstrates the strict control that was exerted over printing under the Covenanter's government.
    • 17 During the previous two decades authority over the print industry had been the prerogative of the Privy Council. For its exercise of this power, see Mann, 'Some property is theft', 36.

    • 21 Stevenson, 'Revolutionary regime', 333. Tyler's absence when Cromwell arrived in Edinburgh is suggested by his resumption of printing for the king at the Restoration. It is difficult to see how this could have happened unless Tyler pleaded that during his absence he had no control over what was produced under his imprint. Twyn was appointed to run the press by the Stationers' Company after the death of Thomas Pape in 1647 (Blagden, Stationers' Company, 142).

    • 25 It has been suggested that some Edinburgh stationers formed a 'Society' for publishing works for their respective shops as early as 1649 (J. Chalmers, Historical Account of Printing, i. 320). There is, however, little evidence of this endeavour until the imprint appeared in 1660. According to Watson, the Stationers' Company made little profit after the Restoration and soon sold the press to a group of Scottish printers (Watson, Preface, 10). This remains uncertain.
    • 26 Couper, Scottish Rebel Printers, 11-12. The document is printed in its entirety in James Maclehose, The Glasgow University Press, 1638-1931 (Glasgow, 1931), 32-4, while the original is located at NRS, Registrum Secreti Sigilli, vol. 116, fo. 179.

    • 30 The Protesters also claimed to be the Commissioners of the General Assembly but styled themselves the '1650 Commissioners', referring to the General Assembly before the Public Resolutions, which they viewed as a corruption of the Kirk.
    • 31 Bulstrode Whitelocke, Memorials of the English Affairs, 4 vols (Oxford, 1853), ii. 447. Holfelder, 'Factionalism', 94-5 claims that the Resolutioners acquired Brown's services in response to Protester works printed on Tyler's press. This is chronologically incorrect since the pro-monarchy moderate party of the Kirk, which controlled the Commission of the General Assembly, printed several items on Brown's press in the closing months of 1650. Holfelder's assumption is probably based upon the Commissioners' complaint in early January 1651 that 'the wanting of a presse for printing doth exceedingly impeed the speedy dispatch of papers necessarie for information' and that Aberdeen had yet to receive some papers produced by the Commission (A. F. Mitchell and James Christie (eds), Records of the Commission of the General Assembly, 3 vols (Edinburgh, 1890-1909) [RCGA], iii. 251). The existence of Resolutioner works produced by Brown in late 1650 shows unequivocally that the printer was already active in their cause before the end of the year. Thus, the comments regarding 'want' in reference to printing probably refer to the isolation and slowness of the Aberdeen press in comparison to Tyler's, rather than an actual inability to find a printing press.
    • 32 Possibly a prototype of A Brief Refutation of the Errors Toleration, Erastianism, Independency and Separation (London, 1692). Although this work was based on a collection of sermons preached by Fergusson in 1652, it may provide at least an insight into the content of an earlier work.

    • 53 In 1653 a work was published in Leith defending the Commonwealth [Peter English, The Survey of Policy or A Free Vindication of the Commonwealth of England, Against Salmasius and Other Royallists (Leith, 1653)], in which arguments were made against royalist opponents. English was commissioned for this work by Robert Lilburne and John Lambert (Oxford, Worcester College, Clarke MSS 3/6, fo. 1; Peacey, Politicians and Pamphleteers, 81, 183, 267). English's work was probably in response to Glencairn's rising which gathered pace in March of that year.

    • 66 Oliver Cromwell, A Letter Sent to the Generall Assembly of the Kirke of Scotland (London, 1650), 3. Cromwell thought the Scots treated the products of English presses less freely. He accused the Kirk, in particular, of censorship and slanderous propaganda similar to that demonstrated by Thomas Edwards' Gangraena: 'And by your hard and subtle words, you have begotten prejudice in those who do too much (in matters of conscience, wherin every soul is to answer for itself to God) depend upon you'. (Cromwell, A Letter Sent, 3-4; W. C. Abbott (ed.), The Writings and Speeches of Oliver Cromwell, 4 vols (Cambridge, MA, 1937-47), ii. 302; RCGA, iii. 21; Edinburgh, National Library of Scotland [NLS], Wodrow Collection, Wodrow Folio [Wod. Fol.], xxix (45).
    • 67 Cromwell famously remarked of seditious material that if his government 'could not stand against paper shot, it was not worthy of preservation' (Jason Peacey, 'Cromwellian England: a propaganda state?', History 91 (2006) 176-99, at 184-5.

Morisone (1659) and M. Paterson (1659); in St Andrews, G. Dradoun (1654); in Edinburgh, James Glen (1656); in Perth, George Dickson (1653); in Aberdeen, D. Stranghan [Straughan] (1659). This list is not exhaustive as many booksellers are only known because of debts left at their death. Nor did booksellers necessarily begin trade on these dates. Morisone, for instance, seems to have been active earlier in the decade, at least as an apprentice.
    • 99 High levels of taxes were introduced during the 1640s to pay for Scottish armies. According to one contemporary source these taxes were particularly high on foodstuffs (NLS, Wod.

In reality, 'The Royal Messenger' was a 'catchword' 'likely to sell it at once to a royalist . . . Its contents are anything but royalist in matter or manner and they consist mainly of fulsome praise' for the Commonwealth and its military triumphs (J. B.

    • 114 Printing of Mercurius Politicus moved to Edinburgh in 1654. It appeared until 11 April 1660, when its name was changed to Mercurius Publicus. (Ibid., 242). George Chalmers and others have incorrectly dated publication from October 1653 (Chalmers, Life of Thomas Ruddiman, 117).

Seymour, 'Pro-government Propaganda in Interregnum England, 1649-60', unpublished Ph.D. thesis (University of Cambridge, 1987), 60, 408. More recently Jason Peacey has argued that government officials were closely involved in providing the information used by these periodicals (Peacey, 'Cromwellian England', 190-8). The argument here rests less on where the information came from and more on how it was circulated.
