Illustration to Robert Burns' poem Auld Lang Syne by J.M. Wright and Edward Scriven. The Complete Works of Robert Burns: Containing the Poems, Songs, and Correspondence. Illustrated By W.H. Bartlett, T. Allom, and Other Artists. With a New Life of the Poet, and Notices, Critical and Biographical[1] by Allan Cunningham. Published in London by George Virtue. No year is given explicitly, but "James Gibson 1856" has been handwritten inside the front cover, it's dedicated to a MP, Archibald Hastie of Paisley, who was no longer a MP by 1857, and some of the artists and engravers were dead before 1842. As such, I'm going with c. 1841 as the year, though it could be as late as 1856, when James Gibson evidently acquired.
