Knox's 'manse' is known to have been further up the street, but it is believed that he lived here for some time, towards the end of his life. Over part of the front of the ground floor is an inscription "Lufe God abufe al, and thi nychtbour as thi-self." The house, which stands near the old lower gate of the City, was purchased by the Free Church. The interior is well preserved and many relics of Knox are stored there. Perhaps the most interesting is the study where the great reformer is traditionally believed to have worked until a fortnight before his death.]

It forms a canopy beneath which is a figure of Scott seated with his favourite dog, and was carved in grey Carrara marble by Sir John Steell. The monument was erected between 1840 and 1844 from the design of George Kemp, a young architect who while travelling through Europe in order to study Gothic architecture, supported himself by working as an ordinary mason. In the niches are characters from some of Scott's work - Prince Charles Stewart, the Lady of the Lake, Meg Merrilies, and the Last Minstrel being the most notable, while the capitals of the pilasters supporting the vaulted roof are ornamented by likenesses of celebrated Scottish writers, including Burns, Hogg, Allan Ramsay, Smollett, Byron, James Thomson, James 1st and Drummond of Hawthornden.

George III laying the foundation stones of the Old College. Subscriptions had been raised to fund a new university in Edinburgh to plans prepared by Robert Adam; however Adam's death in 1792 and the outbreak of the Napoleonic Wars delayed completion until 1831. Parts of the scheme were delayed further: the dome planned by Adam was added in 1887; the intended quadrangle is due to be completed in Summer 2011! The detail of the print is reminiscent of Rowlandson, with background details like spectators standing on the roof beams of a derelict building, a military band including a bassoon, and soldiers restraining a man clinging to the back of a carriage. An impression from the original plate with a new title from a separate plate.
