Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Robert Burns; Francis Grose; Alexander Fraser Tytler Woodhouselee, Lord

Notes: "Tam o' Shanter: A Tale" was published in Francis Grose, The Antiquities of Scotland, second volume (London, 1791).
Page [202] is blank, thus these pages were not extracted from Grose's Antiquities.
From the library of Alexander Fraser Tytler, Lord Woodhouselee, with his marginal emendations. Among those to whom Burns sent the separate off-prints of his poem was the lawyer and historican Alexander Fraser Tytler (1747-1813). Tytler wrote a detailed largely appreciative response, but advised Burns to cut as out-of-place the four lines Tytler has marked on this copy ("the hit at the lawyer and priest"), advice Burns took when reprinting "Tam o' Shanter" in Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect (1793). Holograph note: "Burns left out these four lines desire as being incongruous with the other circumstances of pure horror."
Description: p. 199-201 ; 25 cm.
