Treasures that feature some of the most important writers in 20th-century Scotland are on show at the National Library.
They all come from the collection of Kulgin Duval and Colin Hamilton, who made an extraordinary contribution to Scottish life and letters over 50 years.
'Creative lives' is a display that celebrates Duval and Hamilton's unique creative partnership. As booksellers and publishers, they dealt in rare books and literary manuscripts, which brought them into contact with most of the major Scottish literary figures of the time.
They formed particularly close relationships with Hugh MacDiarmid and George Mackay Brown. This is reflected in the display, which includes manuscripts and letters of MacDiarmid's and an unpublished story from Mackay Brown.
