Excerpt from Book-Auction Records, Vol. 5: A Priced and Annotated Record of London Book Auctions

The Library of the University of Edinburgh began with the bequest of the library of Mr. Clement Little, Commissary of Edinburgh, in 1580, to the city, andthe Kirk of God. It consisted of about 300 volumes, mostly theological, and was housed near St. Giles' Church, until its removal to the old college about 1582. Drummond of Hawthornden was one of the notable donors, and Mr. J. O. Halliwell's remarkable collection of works relating to Shakespeare added in 1872 formed a very valuable addition to this noble library, which contains about volumes and manuscripts.
