Burns Night

A little collection of Burnsiana for 25 January. Working backwards, chronologically, a couple of posters currently on show Edinburgh’s Rose Street; a first day cover from 1966; pages from an early Penguin book; the grave of ‘Clarinda’ (Agnes McLehose), and a line from ‘Ae Fond Kiss’, written for her by Burns; and the Burns monument on Calton Hill.
