What Our Customers Say...

Description

Limited Edition, Original Binding, Signed

Limited edition, limited to 600 un-numbered copies.

Signed by the publisher to the verso of the title page. 

A faithful facsimile of Burns' 'Songs Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect', a comprehensive collection of his most popular and enduring Romantic poems.

Burns is considered to be the national poet of Scotland, affectionately being called Rabbie Burns. He wrote in the Scots language, mostly in a light Scots dialect, bringing the Scottish language and characteristics to a wider audience. 

James M'Kie, sometimes McKie, was a successor of the Kilmarnock Cross Press, who was Burns' original publisher. He published the first facsimile of 'Poems, Chiefly Written in the Scottish Dialect', and was an avid collector of Burnsiana.
