Veitch Collection

A collection of over 400 volumes, mostly early printed editions of the medieval scholastic philosophers, including: Peter Lombard (ca. 1100-1160), John of Salisbury (d. 1180), William of Ockham (ca. 1285-ca. 1349), Thomas Bradwardine (1290?-1349), Albertus Magnus (1193?-1280), Duns Scotus (ca. 1266-1308) and John Major (1469-1550).

While the collection is predominantly printed material - of which 29 items are incunabula - it also contains a small number of manuscript items, including 17th-century students' Philosophy class notes.

The Veitch Collection was presented to the Library in 1895 by the widow of John Veitch (1829-1894), Professor of Logic in the University of Glasgow from 1864 until his death.
