THE EDINA

EDINA BURNS.

Crown 4to, beautifully printed on the finest toned paper, and elegantly bound in cloth extra, gilt edges; or in morocco extra.

A HANDSOME DRAWING-ROOM EDITION OF THE

Poems and Songs of Robert Burns.

ILLUSTRATIONS BY THE MOST DISTINGUISHED SCOTTISH ARTISTS.

The Examiner. “Of all the handsome reprints of the works of ‘nature's own' bard, this 'Edina' edition of the Poems and Songs of Burns is perhaps the handsomest yet produced. Beautifully printed, and profusely illustrated by some of the most distinguished of the Scotch academicians, it forms a shrine worthy of the genius of the 'poet of the land of the mountain and the flood.' It is, as might be expected, Scottish in every respect,-printer, publisher, and illustrators; and as also we think it should ; for with whom could it be so much a labour of love to produce a first-rate edition as with one of Burns's own countrymen ? and who should be better able to illustrate the ‘brown heath and shaggy wood' of Scotia’s scenery, than her own sons?"

The Golden Gift. A Book for the Young.

PROFUSELY ILLUSTRATED WITH ORIGINAL ENGRAVINGS ON WOOD BY EMINENT ARTISTS.

“The editor of this elegant gift-book has set himself the task of filling up the gap which undoubtedly exists in the illustrations for the young of those stories of English literature, for which, at the later period of life, they find the greatest possible enjoyment. He has been ably seconded by artists whom he has called to his aid in the accomplishment of this very desirable work. We have thus a book which, while it forms an acceptable gist to the young, will be turned to and read with pleasure even when they have passed into the sere and yellow leaf of age."--The Examiner.
