Scope and content

(I) Miscellanea of Morris Davies. Miscellaneous scraps accumulated by Morris Davies, Bangor, including manuscript hymns and cuttings from printed hymn books; verses (incomplete?) on the death of William Oliver, Dolgoed, Rhydfendigaid (died 1828), a short biography by Gwen Evans of Francis Evans (1830-76), printer, Pwllheli, and short notes on other Pwllheli printers; cuttings of press contributions by M[orris] D[avies] on hymnology; extracts from William Rowlands ('Gwilym Lleyn'): Llyfryddiaeth y Cymry (Llanidloes, 1869), etc. (Ii) Llythyrau Morris Davies, etc. Eleven letters, 1868-76, from Morris Davies, Upper Bangor to the Reverend D. Silvan Evans at Llan ym Mawddwy and Llanwrin. The letters relate almost entirely to bibliographical matters and there are references to the recipient's edition of William Rowlands ('Gwilym Lleyn'): Llyfryddiaeth y Cymry (Llanidloes, 1869), to the writer's study of hymnology and to his collection of the works of Daniel Rowland, Llangeithio. A mass of bibliographical notes, presumably enclosed with the letters, are bound in at the end of the volume. One of these notes is written on the dorse of a printed notice of a meeting of the committee of Bangor British School, 1855.
