Scope and content
A manuscript containing Brut y Tywysogion interspersed with the remarks and comments of Dr Powel's edition of H. Lloyd [Humphrey Llwyd]: Historie of Cambria now called Wales (1584) (although certain references in the margins to the pages of Dr Powel's edition do not tally with the 1584 edition). The compiler has also added comments of their own in English, and continued the history down to 1544.
