Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you.

I am somewhat biased as Robert Burns is among my top five favorite poets and I consider this to be his best book ever.

Burns's Poems Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect is commonly referred to as the 'Kilmarnock Edition' and was published by XXXXX XXXXX of Kilmarnock on 31st July 1786. It was a very popular book with only 612 copies printed and it sold-out in a little over a month.

It has been reprinted a number of times by several publishers. Your books is the first edition published by D Brown and Company.

If in very good to mint condition the resale value in a private sale, antiquarian book shop, antique shop or other non-auction venue would be 30-40 pounds.

The best place to sell it would be through an online venue such as Amazon.com or the free classified ads site Gumtree.com

Please let me know if you have additional questions about your item or the information and value I have given you. I am here to work with you to fully respond to your question.

Thank you, Michelle
