General Notes
William Syme librarian 1794-1819; William Baxter librarian 1820-44; William T. M'Culloch 1847-48. The National Library of Scotland has a number of Catalogues of the Edinburgh Subscription Library, notably those for 1833 and 1846 and continuation volumes of 1866 and 1887. From these it seems that the library was formed on 11 November 1794. The collection was kept in the session house of Rose Street Chapel from 1794-1807, when it moved to South Bridge Street.
