Lord George Douglas probably died in 1693, shortly after his return from a grand tour of the Low Countries, Germany, Italy, and Poland under the tutelage of the legal and classical scholar, chess master and bibliographer, Alexander Cunningham. Presented here is an account of their tour, and of the 804 books, most of them probably collected in the course these travels, that were presented by Lord George's father, the first Duke of Queensbury, as a notable addition to the resources of the Advocates Library as known from the 1683 catalogue recently published by the Edinburgh Bibliographical Society.
