Biographical/administrative history:

Eneas Mackay was a publisher and bookseller in Stirling from the late 19th century until the mid 20th century. Originally a stationer and newsagent, he had premises on Murray Place in Stirling.  He published many works of local and Scottish interest, including a number of Gaelic language publications.  In 1925 Jamieson and Munro acquired Mackay’s business, but kept that branch of the business trading under the old name. When John Munro retired from the Stirling Observer Press in 1941, he was succeeded by Eneas Mackay. However, Mackay died suddenly two years later.
