MacMillan trading card:  

The card on the left was issued in 1927 by Mitchell cigarettes and reissued in 1993 by William Grant the distillers. It shows the MacMillan tartan and a portrait of Alexander MacMillan (1818-1896) Born in Irvine, he went to London in 1839. In 1843 he and his brother set up a bookselling business and a few months later published their first book. In 1845 they moved to Cambridge. The headquarters were again established in London in 1863 and went on to become one of the world's leadin publishing houses.
