Descripción Llandovery, William Rees 1848, 1848. Welsh and English text. xi, 712 pp. illustrations including frontispiece of inscribed Celtic Cross. Orig. dark green cloth binding, has two Library bookplates and Library class mark on spine, small library stamp on title page. Inside clean and bright, with spotting on a very few pages. An excellent copy of this well-known work.Iolo Morganwg (Edward Williams, 1747-1826) was one of the most controversial figures in Welsh literature. Very much a romantic, he invented much of the ceremonies behind the present National Eisteddfod and the Gorsedd of Bards, and forged a number of poems by attributing his own, as it happens, very effective poems to Dafydd ap Gwilym. In spite of his embroideries and inventions Iolo made a major contribution to enhancing the status of Welsh culture. This book continues the work of the Myvyrian Archaiology, albeit with work of lesser substance. Nº de ref. de la librería 1021
