Collection of Scottish imprints and Scotica. Although he collected books for nearly 65 years, Frederic Ferguson was known principally for his work on the "Short Title Catalogue" and as the managing director of Quaritch's. Ferguson's collection contained early Continental books and bibliographic reference books, as well as Scottish imprints. The Scottish material was mostly printed in Edinburgh and, except for one item, was printed between 1640 and 1700. Many items are unique, and some seldom-seen printers are represented. Much of the collection is in contemporary binding, and some volumes contain Ferguson's penciled notes on the binders' leaves.
