TO THE PUBLIC.
VERY little need be said in introducing to the public such an edition of the popular Scotch bard's poems as the present one. It is the cheapest ever issued from the press, and will come within the means of the humblest and poorest members of the community. But in order to produce the work at the lowest possible price, no abridgement or omission has been had recourse to, either in respect to the prose or poetical contents of original editions. On the contrary, this edition is positively the most complete of all that have ever been published, because a careful research having been made through the earlier collections of Burns' Poems, several pieces have been therein found that have been omitted in more recent editions, but which are included in the present volume.
