About the project

This edition was edited by Rhona Brown, of Scottish Literature at the University of Glasgow. The Gazetteer and interactive map interfaces were developed by Brian Aitken, of the School of Critical Studies at the University of Glasgow. The edition was funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh via a project entitled ‘The Edinburgh Gazetteer: Radical Networks and Journalism in 1790s Scotland’. Images of the newspaper were provided by the Mitchell Library in Glasgow, and the originals can be viewed there. The map appears courtesy of the Maps Department at the National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh.
