Auld Lang Syne is a song which was written in 1788 and came from the pen of Scotland’s Favourite Son: the poet Robert Burns. (The Scots title translates as “old long since”, “times gone by” or “long, long ago.”) The song which inspired this tartan design was contributed by Robert Burns to the 1796 edition of the book, Scots Musical Museum. He made some refinements to the lyrics, having heard it sung by an old man from the Ayrshire area of Scotland, Burns’ homeland. Elements of the song can be traced back to the 1500s. The words of the popular short version are given on the bookmark inside. This Commonplace notebook is bound in genuine “Auld Lang Syne” tartan. Commonplace notebooks date back to the Scottish Enlightenment. Many thinkers and writers used a Commonplace notebook for writing down ideas and knowledge including Adam Smith, Robert Burns, David Hume, and later, writers such as Sir Walter Scott, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Virginia Woolf.
