Bertram was apprenticed to Tait’s Edinburgh Magazine and became managing clerk, before joining a company of strolling players. He returned to Edinburgh and set up as a bookseller and newsagent. In 1855 he was appointed the editor of the North Briton and in 1872 of the Glasgow News, leaving to become a freelance journalist two years later. He published “flagellation” pornography under the names “Revd William Cooper” and “Margaret Anson”. Illustrated throughout. This is a rare leather bound copy of this book.
