Thomas Nelson and Sons. Memories of an Edinburgh Publishing House.

(East Linton): Tuckwell Press, (2001),

First Edition. small octavo, pictorial wrappers. (xxiv), 130pp. Tuckwell Press, Item #15001

A book about the experiences of four men who worked at Thomas Nelson and Sons, one of the largest printing and publishing houses in Edinburgh. They speak of their work practices, techniques, customs and traditions, and employer-employee relations. Nelson's was not only a place of work but also a social center as the family-run firm had a keen interest in the welfare of its workforce. Very fine.
