"This edition, however, was re-set and reprinted more or less simultaneously, since it was over-subscribed. 3,000 copies in all were published. After the first batch had been printed, the type had to be re-set. An error crept into a line in the 'Address to a Haggis', where by "Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware", became "Auld Scotland wants nae stinking ware". The second form of the 1787 edition has thus become known as the 'Stinking Burns'. The price to subscribers was 5 s. to other purchasers 6. As with the Kilmarnock Edition, Burns assumed all personal responsibility." (

The Scots Musical Museum 1787 to 1803 Robert Burns, James Johnson Co-Author, Collector Johnson & Co. National Library of Scotland

Burns contributed largely to the work, and Stephen Clarke prepared the arrangements of most of the airs. ["The volumes of the Musical museum, as originally published, were 'Humbly dedicated to the Catch Club, instituted at Edinburgh June 1771.' On the completion of the sixth and last volume, in 1803, Johnson substituted a new set of title-pages, dedicating the work 'To the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.'"--Laing's pref., to 1839 ed., v. 1, p. ii, foot-note]. (National Library of Scotland)

"The first volume was published in 1787 and included three songs by Burns. He contributed 40 songs to volume 2, and would end up responsible for about a third of the 600 songs in the whole collection as well as making a considerable editorial contribution. The final volume was published in 1803.

As well as collecting old songs, Burns wrote new words to old tunes, and many of the songs now attributed to Burns have older roots. Songs in the collection include Auld Lang Syne, Lord Ronald, my Son (better known as Lord Randal) and My love is like a Red, Red Rose. Burns' songs include The Battle of Sherramuir, Scots Wha Hae, Green Grow the Rashes, Flow Gently Sweet Afton, Ye Banks and Braes of Bonnie Doon, Ae Fond Kiss, The Winter it is Past, Comin' Thro the Rye and John Anderson, My Jo.

The collection became popular internationally, and songs and tunes were arranged by composers such as Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven." (Wikipedia)

Remains of Nithsdale and Galloway song: with historical and traditional notices relative to the manners and customs of the peasantry 1810 Allan Cunningham Collector Thomas Cadell R. H. Cromek 414

"The collection Remains of Nithsdale and Galloway Song appeared the following December, of which Cunningham says that ‘every article but two little scraps was contributed by me’ (ibid., 79), a fact not discernible from Cromek's acknowledgement in the introduction of Cunningham's services in drawing ‘many pieces from obscurity’. The book, which contains interesting accounts in prose of the Scottish border peasantry, obviously by Cunningham, was favourably received, and the mystification as to the origin of the ballads was always transparent to some, especially Scott and Hogg. An article on this volume by Professor John Wilson in Blackwood's Magazine (December 1819) first drew public attention to Cunningham's poetical merits." (ODNB)

This book-length narrative poem tells of the return of Mary, queen of Scots, to Scotland after her long sojourn in France. To welcome the young queen a poetic competition—described by Hogg as a ‘wake’—is held at Holyrood Palace among the minstrels of Scotland. The poem tells the story of this event, interspersed with the songs sung by the minstrels. The Queen's Wake was immediately recognized as a major achievement, with spice added by the circumstances of Hogg's background and upbringing. Indeed, George Goldie, the publisher of the poem, assured readers in the second edition (1813) that the work was ‘really and truly the production of James Hogg, a common shepherd, bred among the mountains of Ettrick Forest, who went to service when only seven years of age; and since that period has never received any education whatever’ (p. vi).
