Dugald Stewart a life in books

In s previous life I was a rare books librarian .... Rock n roll! I loved it every minute. I did my masters thesis on the Library of Dugald Stewart an 18th century Scottish philosophe and mathematician. Fascinating man.  Anyhoo to my eternal shame he lived for a large part of this life not far from me. I have never been there till last weekend! And it is beautiful, Kinneil estate near Bo'ness.
 

 
 
The inventor James Watt also live there and he and Dugald knew each other.
 


 

It's taken me a while but I will be back.
