About this Item: Edinburgh, 1787. Quarter Calf Leather. Condition: Very Good Plus. First Edition. Burn's Poems. First General Edition, Edinburgh, from Kilmarnock private edition of 1786. Printed for the Author and Sold by William Creech. 368 pages. Octavo. All first issue prints, incl. the misprint on page xxxvii, addenda to subscribers list, and skinking on p. 263. With the bookplate of Francis Bayard Rives. This edition includes glossary. This work launched Burn's career and brought to the world the lyrical Scottish dialect. Robert Burns (1759 - 1796), also known as Rabbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire, Ploughman Poet, and various other names and epithets, 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 is regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic movement, and after his death he became a great source of inspiration to the founders of both liberalism and socialism, and a cultural icon in Scotland and among the Scottish diaspora around the world. Size: 8vo. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 1001265
