Anster Fair a poem in 6 cantos.
Printed in Edinburgh by Oliver and Boyd for William Cockburn of Anstruther in 1812. Anster is the local name for a small town on the East Neuk of Fife now called Anstruther. This epic poem is about the town's historic market day immortalised by William Tennant. It tells the story of a local lass, unimpressed by the local talent who sets a competition for a potential suitor involving such things as a sack and donkey race, storytelling and bagpipe playing.
