Some Account of the Glenriddell Mss; Of Burns's Poems free pdf Excerpt from Some Account of the Glenriddell Mss- Of Burns's Poems: With Several Poems Never Before Published In 1853 the widow of Mr. Wallace Currie (son of Dr. Currie- the biographer of Burns) presented to the Athenaeum Library, Liverpool, two curious and interesting manuscript volumes. They are thus described in the Athenaeum Catalogue: - "Poems written by Mr. Robert Bums, and selected by him from his unprinted collection for Robert Riddell, of Glenriddell, Esq. A quarto volume of 162 pages, exclusive of portrait, title, and an introductory letter. The letter, and seventy-eight pages of the poems, are entirely in the poet's autograph. The rest of the Ms. is in the handwriting of amanuenses, with occasional corrections and remarks by Burns himself." "Letters by Mr. Burns, which he selected for R. Riddell, Esq., of Glenriddell, F.A.S. of London and Edinr., and Member of the Literary and Philosophical Society of Manchester. A quarto volume, containing 103 pages, exclusive of title and portrait. The first six pages are blank- the rest of the volume is in Burns's autograph." Until last year these volumes had been so carefully preserved under lock and key, that very few even of the proprietors of the Athenaeum knew of their existence. At my suggestion, they have now been placed within a glass case in the library, and may at all times be readily inspected.
