REPRINT OF THE FIRST DUNDEE 
REGISTER FOR 1783. 

We have before us a reprint in facsimile of the 
first number of the "Dundee Register" or Direc- 
tory, which was published in the year 1782 Wo 
believe there is only one copy of the original 
known to exist, and it is from this unique volume 
that the present reprint has been prepared. 
I he quality and kind of paper and style of type i 
of the original have all as far as possible been 
rigidly adhered to. The edition has been limited 
to 100 copies, and, as showing the interest taken 
in the quaint reprint, n.arly all that number hare ' 
been already subscribed for. The few remaining 
copies will doubtless be eagerly sought after by 
local antiquarians and others interested in the 
history and progress of the town. Mr A. C. 
Lamb, who owns the rare original, has made ! 
its republication a labour of love, and has bestowed 
an amount of attention in securing an exact fac

which there have been above four millions of yarda

THE 

DUNDEE REGISTER, 

For the Year 1783. 

An Account of the Town of Dundee, &c. 

DUNDEE, the AUclum or laodunum of 
the antients, is a well built flourifh- 
ing town, in the fhire of Angus, or Forfar, 
and ranks as third of the royal boroughs. 

It is feated on the north fide of the ri- 
ver Tay, about eight miles from its mouth, 
in W. L. 2. 48. N. L. 56, 26. It is very 
advantageoufly fituated for commerce. Trad- 
ing veffels of a large burden can get into its 
harbour. There are convenient and hand- 
fome warehoufes built in 1756 ; and alfo a 
good area for fhip building, which has been 
carried on to a good extent. The houfes 
are built of ftone. 

The High ftreet is a very fpacious oblong 

fqiiarc, in the centre of the town : — from 

h branch out the four principal ftreets, viz. 

the Methergate, Overgatc, Seagate, and 

A 3 



'[ 6 ] 

Murravgate, which, with feveral leiler ones, 
have all been lately paved. On the fouth 
fide of the High ftrcet (lands the Town- 
houfe. It is a noble ftrufture of architecture, 
and was finifhed in 1734. ^ contains two 
elegant rooms, one of which is ufed oc- 
casionally as a mafon lodge and affembly 
room ; the Baillies Court-Room, Poft- 
office, Bank-office, and vaulted repofitory 
for the records. At the eaft end of the 
ftreet is a Trades-hall, lately erecled : It 
contains a very large and well finifhed room, 
and nine lefler ones, for the ufe of the nine 
incorporations Three eftabliihed churches, 
befides feveral chapels and meeting houfcs, 
having been found infufficient for the in- 
creasing number of inhabitants, a hand- 
fome new church has been lately built in the 
Cowgate, on the north part of the town. 
There is alfo a magnificent fquare Gothic 
tower or fteeple : it is now feparated from 
the other buildings ; but was formerly a 
part of a venerable and fuperb building of 
churches in the form of a crofs, erefted by 
David Earl of Huntindon, brother to Wil- 
liam I. of Scotland, and was dedicated to 
the Virgin Mary. This he did on his third 
crufade (in which, with 500 of his country- 
men, he had accompanied Richard I. of 
England, anno 1 1 89), in gratitude for his 
deliverance from feveral imminent dangers, 
and particularly from fhipwreck, by which 
he had nearly perifhed when in view of the 
place. 



[ 7 ] 

Ac this period he changed the name of 
the town from AleSium to Dcidonum ; and 
under this name we find it increafing eon- 
fiderably in the 13th century. The de~ 
ftruction of the churches adjoining to this 
tower, was the work of Edward I. of 
England, that barbarous deftroyer of mo- 
numents and records. He was fo enra- 
ged that the inhabitants mould oppofc him, 
and aid his inveterate foe the famous 
Wallace, that he fet fire to the churches 
and town, the flames deftroying all but a 
part on the eaft fide, now called the Old 
Kirk. The town fufrered very much about 
the middle of the lafl century ; for jull fix 
years after it had been ftormed by Mon- 
trofe, it was beiieged in form by General 
Monk ; and although it. made a gallant 
defence under Lumfden, it was at laft car- 
ried by force on the ift September 1651, 
when all that were in arms were put to 
the fword. There were above lixty veffcls 
in the harbour at that time. In order to 
enable the inhabitants to recover from 
thefe calamities, and to repair their har- 
bour and other public works, Charles JI. 
granted them a excife of one third of an 
Englifh penny upon every gallon of ale or 
beer fold in the town for twenty-five years. 
This act has been continued by five fubfe- 
quent acts At prefent Dundee is in a very 
ftouri filing ftate ; manufactures go on bnfkly, 
and there are near one hundred fail of fhip- 
ping belonging -to the place. The feveral 



[ 8 ] 

manufactories coniift of linnen ; (efpeciaily 
Ofnaburghs), fail cloth, cordage, threads, 
ftockings, buckrams, tanned-leathers, (hoes, 
and hats. A fugar-houfe has been erected 
lbme years ago. The Ofnaburgh trade is 
the ftaple, of which there has been above 
four millions of yards annually flamped of 
late. Threads have been long famous in 
Dundee, and are now manufactured to a 
large amount, employing ibout 3000 peo- 
ple. The inhabitants are reckoned to be 
about 16000. There has lately been built 
an excellent new quay for the common 
pafiage, and which accommodates travel- 
lers, in palling at all times of the tide. 
And a new ftreet leading to the more has 
been lately opened, which promifes to be 
of much fervice. The town is well and 
plentifully fupplied with water and all forts 
of vivres, and has an excellent butchery 
market-place, lately built.
