the Heyday of Scottish Enlightenment Publishing
 the Heyday of Scottish Enlightenment Publishing
This chapter explores the heyday of publishing in the Scottish Enlightenment. Aside from a number of new books that William Strahan merely printed for Thomas Cadell, as he had formerly printed books for Andrew Millar, the two men copublished some later editions of popular titles that were initially produced by others, such as William Buchan's Domestic Medicine, as well as several first editions that did not reveal their collaboration on the title page. The first edition of Henry Mackenzie's Man of Feeling, for example, shows only Cadell's name as the publisher, even though Strahan owned half the copyright (his name was added to the imprint of the second edition). Similarly, although Cadell's name alone appeared in the imprints of David Hume's historical and philosophical works, it is clear from Hume's correspondence that Strahan was a silent copublisher of those titles.
