Robert Chambers

Author Code: ERCH

Born: Jul. 10, 1802 - Peebles, Scotland

Died: Mar. 17, 1871 - St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland

Educated at the Edinburgh High School, Robert's appetite for reading and knowledge began when he was a child. When he was 16, he started his own business as a bookstall-keeper. He started with some of his father's old books and gradually expanded the business. His brother William set up a business as a printer. The two then joined forces with Robert writing and William printing. Their first publication was a magazine called Kaleidoscope, or Edinburgh Literary Amusement. In 1824, Robert published his first work, Traditions of Edinburgh, which was highly successful. Robert was married in 1829 and the couple had 14 children. In 1832, Robert's brother started Chambers' Edinburgh Journal, which became very popular. Eventually, Robert joined the enterprise a a joint editor. He developed an interest in geology during the 1830s and was elected fellow of the Geological Society of London in 1844. That year, he published Vestiges of the Natural History of the Creation; the book being controversial in its approach to creation and was thus published anonymously. Nevertheless, the book was popularly successful. In 1851, he joined the Westminster Journal which favoured evolution theory. In 1862, he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Laws by the University of St. Andrews. Robert was finally recognised as the author of Vestiges in 1884 by Alexander Ireland. Chambers' other works include Walks in Edinburgh (1825), History of the Rebellion of 1745 (1828), Life of Sir Walter Scott (1832), Poems (1835), Life and Works of Robert Burns (1851), Edinburgh Papers (1861) and The Book of Days (1864).
