Bookbinder

Broad Street

New York

New York 1. "Any Gentlemen or Ladies" ... advertisement for French lesons,Enquire at:
1.(1758) *Mr. Robert, Mr. Alpin, Bookbinder. First appearance of a bookbinder with this name. It is possible that it is a misprint on Robert M'Alpine, bookbinder or an adjustment of R. M'Alpine who was recently found Bankrupt. See McAlpine, Robert, Bookbinder N.Y. The Weekly Post Boy (N.Y, N.Y.) March, 29 1758. However,this argument is undermined by the fact that Robert M'Alpine was advertising under M'Alpine in the New York Mercury in May,8,1758
