Texte intégral

1I would first of all like to thank the reading panel of the Société Française des Études Écossaises and the various people who took time to proofread this book and who gave invaluable help and advice: Marion Amblard, Danièle Berton-Charrière, Jean Berton, Ned Carter-Miles, Christian Civardi, Rosie Findlay, Margaret Gillespie, Alan Riach, Carla Sassi and Bernard Sellin.

2The 2013 Besançon conference and this book project would have been impossible without the financial support and the encouragements of Laurence Dahan-Gaida, head of the Research laboratory CRIT, EA3224 (Université de Franche-Comté, Besançon).

3I also want to thank the Annales de Franche-Comté, Frédérique Baehr, Marie Bonjour, and its director Philippe Schepens for their help, good humour, sound advice, trust and patience.

4I wish to thank Blandine Cordellier & Christophe Bai for their friendship, their enthusiasm for the project and Christophe’s skills in designing the conference poster & the book cover.

5Many thanks to the following organisations and people for the photographs and reproductions in this book (or used at the conference): David Steel & the Gatehouse Development Initiative, Bérénice Hartwig & the Bibliothèque d’étude et de conservation de Besançon, Christophe Monterlos, the Tate Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery.

6Lastly, thank you Antonella Braida for all your invaluable comments and encouragements throughout the writing and publication of this book.

Era il giorno ch’al sol si scoloraro
per la pietà del suo factore i rai,
quando ì fui preso, et non me ne guardai,
chè i bè vostr’occhi, donna, mi legaro.
Francesco Petrarca
