Scope and content

A volume containing 'cywyddau' and some 'englynion' by John Philips, Edmwnd Prys, Lewis Glyn Cothi, M'edydd ap R's, [? Huw Arwystli], ?Thomas Derllysc, Tudur Aled, John Tudyr, John Mowddwy, and Ifan Tew, and an imperfect 'cywydd'. Pp. 41-5, as stated by J. H. Davies in a note on the inside lower cover (and not pp. 35-9 as suggested by J. Gwenogvryn Evans) are in the hand of Sion Tudur. J. H. Davies has also stated, and J. Gwenogvryn Evans also suggested, that pp. 1-17 are in the hand of Edmwnd Prys, but this section is in fact in two hands (pp. 1-9, 9-17), neither of which resembles that of Prys. There are some additions in the hand of David Ellis, Cricieth (1736-95) and some marginal and other additions by Peter Bailey Williams (1763-1836), Llanrug.
