    Often obscured by the powerful forces of the Reformation in Scotland, the Scottish version of Renaissance culture was a hybrid, arriving from Italy via intermediaries and blending with the medieval International Gothic culture. The first book to provide a fully illustrated survey of the unique and little-known heritage of the Renaissance in Scotland, Thomas's study examines the buildings, books and artefacts of the period to reveal a vibrant, confident and cosmopolitan culture in the two centuries between 1424 and 1626.
