Edinburgh. 1809 - 1952. I think that their materials were acquired by Stephenson, Blake, but Millington makes no mention of this in his history of Stephenson, Blake.

Their San Francisco branch office, opened by 1878, became Palmer & Rey in 1882.

Annenburg ( Type Founders of America and their Catalogs) also indicates that by 1878 they had a branch in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
