Burnsiana: Private and Domestic Burns-Related Objects, 1796-1909
This section of the website provides a web-based classification of the different kinds of Burns-related material culture available commercially or for domestic use during the period 1796-1909. Different types of Burns-related objects are presented along with background information about manufacturers and date of manufacture (where available). Individual objects' intended use, and their significance within the nineteenth-century economy of literary tourism and memorabilia, will also be addressed.
This information is accompanied by representative images of the different types of commercial and private/domestic Burns-related material culture.
The project team invite you to get in touch with any interesting images or details of privately owned Burns memorabilia.
