Volume 1 of three scrapbooks compiled c.1825-50, bound in leather, labelled on the spine and titled 'Scrap Book' and numbered I-III, and bearing the bookplate of Archibald Craig.  In the front of Volume III there is a manuscript family tree.  Archibald Craig b.1805, educated at Craigmount and the Edinburgh Institution, from whom volumes descend to  Archibald Hugh Craig b.1892, (address under Copyright field); Archibald Hugh Baillie Craig b.1925 (address under Copyright field).  The family, as Craig Bros., were wholesale and retail woollen merchants and hatters in Edinburgh, running a cloth warehouse on the South Bridge.  The volumes, which reflect Archibald's diverse interests, contain a typical collection of cuttings but with an emphasis on military subjects.  They include engravings and sketches of buildings in Edinburgh and the vicinity, miscellaneous drawings and an unidentified architect's design for a Monument to General Sir Ralph Abercromby (died 1801).

PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM NO 53: THE MERRICK ALBUM
Bottle green Morocco leather album, elaborately embossed with gold. Insc: (front cover) 'H I M '
The album seems to have been compiled by "H.I.M.", probably Hezekiah Merrick of Eskhill House at Roslin, related to John Merrick, founder, c.1800, of the Gunpowder Mills there.  Included are views of the Merrick family  and photographs which seem to have been taken for H. Merrick by JOHN THOMSON, custodian of Roslin Chapel and steward of the estate of the Earl of Roslin.   This is evidenced by an inscription written in pencil below one of the photographs of Roslin Chapel which reads: "carved pillar was discovered during restoration.   Only two upper courses were carved and Baxter carved remainder. I got Thomson to take this photo for me. H.M.  I consider it the handsomest pillar in the chapel."   [This is not the Apprentice Pillar.]  Another photograph shows the chapel decorated for Christmas 1882.   The Thomson photographs alternate with commercial photographs by G.W.Wilson, J. V. Valentine and others, frequently on the verso leaves.   The album dates to c. 1860's, with a dated Thomson photograph of 1862 and various newspaper clippings of that decade.Photographs include one of the Gunpowder Mills with about 20 workers, one of the Cylinder there with 32 workers in 1863, and others showing Harecraigs, the bridge at Kirkettle and groups of people.There is a view of Eskhill with figures captioned in pencil as JM Eyres, Mrs HM Eyres, Miss M and D McGill and others show Rosebank with Miss Carrol, Mrs W, Lucy, Major and Miss Wedderburn with children in 1860;  Whitehill with Col. Learmonth in a carriage, with a lady and child and, also at Whitehill Mr Ramsay, Lady Louisa and the young ladies.   There is also a press cutting dated 27 June 1882 about the life and lineage of Mr Wardlaw-Ramsay, with a view of Cluny House, Aberchirder and two photographs of The Bush.
There is also a photograph of a vessel capsized in a harbour with her name "Daphne" clearly visible above the water. This was a steam powered passenger vessel launched friom the Linthouse shipyard on the Clyde on 3rd July 1883. Due to a malfunction in the launching apparatus she sank immediately in deep water with the death os 124 workmen and boys who were on board. A memorial park exists in Govan.
