Geraint ab Erbin

A heavily emended draft, [1838] (watermarks 1837), of the English translation of 'Geraint ab Erbin' in the hand of Charlotte Guest [see Mabinogion (1849), II, 67-141].
According to Guest's journal, on 11-16 December 1838 she and Thomas Price (Carnhuanawc) worked at correcting her translation of Geraint, which had otherwise been completed by her that Summer (Lady Charlotte Guest MS XI, p. 103). The text was first published in The Mabinogion… Part III: Geraint the Son of Erbin (London and Llandovery, 1840).

Mabinogion manuscripts

Manuscripts of Lady Charlotte Guest, 1838-[1843], relating to her translations of nine of the twelve Welsh folk tales published as The Mabinogion from the Llyfr Coch Hergest, and Other Ancient Welsh Manuscripts, with an English Translation and Notes, Parts I-VI (1838-1845), namely 'Iarlles y Ffynnawn', 'Peredur ab Efrawc', 'Geraint ab Erbin', 'Kulhwch ac Olwen', 'Breuddwyd Rhonabwy', 'Pwyll Pendevig Dyved', 'Branwen verch Llyr', 'Manawyddan vab Llyr' and 'Math vab Mathonwy'. The manuscripts consist of transcripts of the original Welsh texts, some in the hand of John Jones (Tegid) and other scribes; drafts of Charlotte Guest's translations; and drafts for her notes to each translation. Most of the manuscripts consist of author's copy for the printers. None of the material relates to 'Breuddwyd Maxen Wledig', 'Kyfranc Lludd a Llevelys' or 'Hanes Taliesin', the three remaining tales published in the seventh and final part (1849).
