Commonplace notebooks date back to the second half of the 18th Century and the Scottish Enlightenment. It was a time when Scotland led in logic, thought and inspirational ideas. Every writer and thinker used a Commonplace notebook. The notebooks were scrapbooks for ideas, facts, knowledge, and thought used by leading economists, scientists, thinkers and writers such as Robert Burns, Adam Smith, David Hume, Francis Hutcheson, John Playfair and James Hutton. The popularity of the Commonplace notebooks continued and many famous British authors and artists used them such as Sir Walter Scott, John Milton, Francis Bacon, E.M Forster, W.H Auden, Arthur Conan Doyle and Virginia Wolf.
