Scope and content

Three volumes included with the books of Frances Power Cobbe (1822-1904) (see also Minor Deposits 1309-1315): a rough list of books at Barmouth Library, probably from Frances Power Cobbe's bequest, together with a copy of an Appeal for contributions for establishing the Frances Power Cobbe Room at the Library; Barmouth Library Visitors Book, 1906-28, including the signatures of W. Goscombe John and George Eyre Evans; and notes on the Holy Gospels according to St Matthew and St John, in the hand of R. Norris, St Bees College [near Whitehaven, Cumberland]. This volume was probably brought to Barmouth by the Rev. James Edwardes, vicar of the parish of Llanaber from 1876 onwards, who was also a student at St Bees College.
