Who We Are

Hew Dalrymple (pseud.?)

The bio below comes from a published article and may now be dated.

Authorship by “Hew Dalrymple” is purported on the last page of the 1758 pamphlet “Information for the Hair Dressers in Edinburgh; Against the Incorporation of Barbers—The Second Edition.” The British Library has deemed the work pseudonymous. Further investigation, however, suggests that perhaps the pamphlet is a rollicking variant on a no-longer-extant legal document, the author of which may well have been a Hew Dalrymple.
