EVER since Fergusson has been known as a Poet, his works have been highly esteemed by his countrymen; but since the works of the celebrated Burns have been so universally read and admired, his high encomiums on our author's genius has awakened a desire in the lovers of poetry in general, to be in possession of Fergusson's works; and the publisher has been often solicited by those who were not natives of Scotland, to furnish them with copies of these Poems. In order to render the reading of the work easy to those not conversant with the Scottish dialect, he has published the present edition with an ample glossary annexed, which has not been done before; by which means he trusts, that the Poems of Fergusson may now be read, and their beauties enjoyed, with as much facility as those of Buras.
