Burns – Burnsiana: A Casket of Characteristic Gems by W R Donald

Though this copy is not dated, I believe the original copy was published in 1898. I am presuming that WR Donald was the WR Donald who was the President of the Bradford Typographical Society and a witness to the events that led to the birth of the Independent Labour Party in the 1890’s. Google has little on him concentrating instead on a Black American Football Player.

Donald published a number of works.
