About the printer

The book is one of four works known to have been printed by Robert Lekpreuik in Stirling in 1571. Lekpreuik was both a printer and a bookseller. He printed in Edinburgh for 10 years before he established the first printing press in Stirling in 1571. He was in business there for only a year before he moved to St Andrews and then back Edinburgh.

Throughout the 1560s and 1570s his press was by far the most productive in Scotland.
