Maurice Lindsay's The Burns Encyclopaedia

We are very happy to announce that the newly-revised and updated edition of Maurice Lindsay's The Burns Encyclopaedia (first published in 1959) is now available.

This fourth edition of Lindsay's Burns Encyclopaedia has been revised and edited by Professor David Purdie, and the Centre for Robert Burns Studies' Co-Directors, Professor Gerard Carruthers and Dr Kirsteen McCue.

All aspects of the poet's biography and literary output are covered, as are his correspondents and contemporaries, many of the latter set against the backdrop of Enlightenment Edinburgh.
