The Romance of Robert Burns. A Pastoral of the Present and Drama of Days Lang Syne.

New York: Isaac H. Blanchard Company, (1899). Likely first edition. (OCLC & RLIN note holdings dated 1889, though given that the pagination, etc., agree and that notes in the text allude to events in 1899, it seems likely this earlier dating is a ghost.). 8vo, original green cloth, 326, [1] pages. 17 plates, two portraits. Some spotting, instances of fraying, and a little cracking along the rear hinge (but sound); a very good copy. Item #11047

A typically 19th century American work of immigrant yearning, an odd amalgam of sentimental drama, memoir and history. Dedicated to Andrew Carnegie.

Price: $45.00
