Scope and content

A miscellany written during the period 1762-5 by Rowland Jones, Pandy [Llanuwchllyn]. It contains poetry in free metres and some 'englynion', prognostications of Erra Pater based on the incidence of New Year's Day, and particulars of the phases of the moon in the year 1765. The poets mentioned by name include Cadwaladr Dafydd, Morgan Thomas 'o Gynllwyd', Robert Thomas, and Rowland Jones, but most of the poems are either unsigned or incomplete as a result of mutilation of folios. Memoranda in a later hand, probably by one Rees Jones, refer to spare and wanting copies of Y Dysgedydd and Seren [Gomer] for 1820-4, and other later entries associate the volume with the Llangadfan and Llanerfyl districts.
