After many years of studying American colonial documents and seventeenth century English writings, John Gribbel received an offer to purchase the Glenriddell Manuscripts of Robert Burns in 1913. Gribbel purchased the collection and promptly gifted them to the Scots Committee to return the documents to Robert Burns’ home country of Scotland. These two volumes are facsimile copies of the complete collection, along with copies of the correspondence between Gribbel and the Scots Committee.
