The considerably expanded third edition of the works of Scottish poet Michael Bruce (1746-67), who did not publish a poem in his lifetime. A small selection of his works were compiled by a classmate, John Logan, and published as Poems on Several Occasions in 1770; and for this edition more manuscripts were supplied by his mother. There is an introductory essay on Bruce by William Craig which first appeared in the Scottish literary periodical, The Mirror.
