The Scottish Enlightenment was a time for creating notable works of art.
In Glasgow, the Foulis brothers Robert and Andrew promoted the arts and undertook some of the finest printing ever to have been produced in Scotland.
They were famed for the accuracy of their printed editions of classical works.
In 1756 they printed Homer's 'Iliad' as part of a classical series. James Moor, Professor of Greek at Glasgow University read the proof, and made corrections which were then implemented in a subsequent version.
