Originally published in 1939, by Oxford University Press. Complaining that there are no dynamic biographies of the Scottish poet, and foregoing the straight-time approach usual with such undertakings, DeLancey describes his book as "my answer to the question, subordinated or ignored by most chronological biographers, What sort of a man was Robert Burns? I have therefore discarded time-sequence in favour of the relationships of everyday life in which Burns most clearly revealed his personality." This copy from the library of Canadian poet/editor/essayist, Fred Cogswell, and bears his signature on front free end paper; blue cloth, gilt spine lettering, 321 pages, including index. Moderate edgewear all around, tanned/ lightly dusted edges w/faint soil to top, offsetting to pastedowns and end papers. Plain brown dust jacket with 2.25" torn from top spine, moderate corner wear.
