The "SCOTSMAN," in reviewing one of the Volumes, says:--

"The 'Edina' edition of 'The Poetical Works of Robert Browning,'
published by Messrs. W. P. Nimmo, Hay, & Mitchell, Edinburgh (3s.
6d.), may lay claim to be the most complete non-copyright edition of
the poet which has yet solicited the attention of the public. It is a
well-bound and printed volume of over seven hundred pages in double
column, and is provided with a brief, but pregnant, introduction by
the Rev. Edward Frederick Hoernlé, Leith. Included in it is a short
poem, 'Ben Karshook's Wisdom,' strikingly Browningesque in thought and
form, which does not appear in any previous collection."
