The contents include 44 of Burns' best known poems including To a Louse, The Cotter's Saturday Night, To a Mouse, The Twa Dogs and To a Mountain Daisy. Released in 2009 to celebrate

New material includes an introduction by 'the man who played Burns' -author, actor and Burns expert -John Cairney, exploring Burns' life and work, especially the origins of The Kilmarnock Edition. Looking to the future of Burns in Scotland and the rest of the world, Clark McGinn, world-renowned Burns Supper speaker, provides an afterword that speaks to Burns' continuing legacy. Illustrated throughout with original line drawings by top political satirist Bob Dewar, The Luath Kilmarnock Edition makes a beautiful gift for any Burns enthusiast.

Here's what you say about us...

Robert Burns was born into a farming family in Alloway in Ayrshire in 1759. He died in Dumfries at the early age of 37. Yet in that short time he had taken the Scottish literary world by storm, and had secured for himself a place in history and legend. Illustrations by Bob Dewar, introduction by John Cairney and afterword by Clark McGinn.

The author is indeed a striking example of native genius bursting through the obscurity of poverty and the obstructions of laborious life. - THE EDINBURGH MAGAZINE, contemporary account
