Notes

A charming Georgian-era Scottish Bible. The publisher Sir David Hunter Blair, 3rd Baronet of Dunskey, succeeded his father, Edinburgh banker and provost James Hunter, in the "Old Corruption" post of King's Printer, in 1787. He is also noted for having built Blairquhan Castle, Ayrshire, in 1821.
