Valu­able Burns book bought for £2 gets do­nated

The Scotsman - - Around Scotland -

A his­toric Robert Burns book bought for £2 at a char­ity sale has been do­nated to a Fife library.

Dunfermlin­e Carnegie Library and Gal­leries have gained the book, The Na­tional Burns, and added it to their col­lec­tion.

Cassie Kennedy made the do­na­tion af­ter pick­ing up the item at a Sa­mar­i­tans book sale in Kirk­caldy. The book was first pub­lished in 1893 close to the an­niver­sary of the first cen­te­nary of the poet’s death in 1796.
