'Coll Gwynfa',

Two holograph copies of a Welsh translation by William Owen-Pughe of Milton's 'Paradise Lost'. The first copy (225 ff.) was written between 30 May and 22 December 1818 whereas the second (224 ff.) was written between [23 December 1818] and 17 [February] 1819, the dates given in square brackets being taken from the diary (NLW MS 13248B). There are differences in orthography between the two copies, the ç, d, and v of I having been altered in II to ch, dd, and f respectively. In II only is there a translation of 'The Argument' to each Book of the poem (rendered by the translator 'Y Defnydd') and this is the copy which was used by the printers when the translation was published under the title Coll Gwynfa in 1819.
