In November 1786 Burns travelled to Edinburgh to arrange for the publication of a second edition of his poems. There he used his personal connections to meet with William Creech, a popular bookseller and printer, who agreed to publish the book by subscription. The Edinburgh Edition was published in April 1787 and contained a few new poems alongside the work contained in the Kilmarnock Edition. Later that year, a further edition was published in London by A. Strachan and T. Cadell.
