Book Description

Item Description: London - James Cochrane and Co., 1834. Hardcover. Book Condition: FINE. A beautiful set of the Works or Robert Burns with his Life by Allan Cunningham. Complete in eight volumes. Volume I contains the Life of Robert Burns by Allan Cunningham, and volumes II-VIII contain his complete works. Robert Burns (25 January 1759 21 July 1796) (also known as Robbie Burns, Rabbie Burns, Scotland's favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as The Bard) was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest. Allan Cunningham (7 December 1784 30 October 1842) was a Scottish poet and author. His father was a neighbour of Robert Burns at Ellis land and so he also later brought out this edition of Robert Burns' Works. Condition: Very Good. Postage to be agreed.
