The latest exhibition of the Dunedin Public Libraries commemorates Scottish poet Robert Burns, born on 25 January 1759.

More than twenty Burns poems and songs form the core of the exhibition.

Especially noteworthy are two volumes of A Selection of Original Scottish Airs (1793-1794) once owned by Gilbert Burns, brother of the poet and father of the early Dunedin settler the Rev. Thomas Burns. An 1897 photograph of the Burns statue dedication in the Octagon and material relating to the Dunedin Burns Club highlight the poet’s association with the Edinburgh of the South.
