Valuable Burns book bought for £2 gets donated


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.
