Description: J.M. Dent, London, 1961, first edition.. 155 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "Many who sing the love songs of Robert Burns have no idea of the heroines in whose honour they were composed. Mr. Hill's book provides the necessary information, for it comprises a collection of the poet's love lyrics set in a series of pen pictures of the 'garden of girls' to whom they are addressed. The songs are thus given their proper background, and the story connected with each heroine is fully and admirably told. This identification adds greatly to the interest of the songs..The poems are annotated where Scottish expressions need definition." Small light label mark on free front endpaper, minor wrinkkling at top/bottom of spine, small bump to bottom c o r n e r o f boards, small shallow dint on fore-edge of read board, small faint stain on both boards, minor soiling. Dust jacket has light soiling, slight darkening to spine and fllap-folds, very light edge wear, light wrinkling at bottom of f la p- fo ld s, t i ny s tains along bottom rear edge. Very Good-/Very Good-.
