Letters from Llangollen,

  • 1863 /

A volume, 1863, entitled Letters from Llangollen and based on a series of nineteen letters describing a tour in North Wales and which were published in the Sheffield Daily Telegraph in September 1863. Cuttings from the paper are interspersed with illustrative prints (mainly of churches, castles and other edifices in Wales and England), a few cuttings from other sources, and additional manuscript notes apparently by the author, John Holland.
There are references to the 'Ladies of Llangollen' (ff. 19-22), Dinas BrĂ¢n (ff. 23-25 verso) and other local features of Llangollen. Pasted onto f. 38 is an envelope, postmarked at Sheffield, 12 September 1863, and addressed to John Holland at Upper Bangor, together with a photograph presumably originally enclosed in the envelope and which probably depicts Holland's correspondent.

Holland, John, 1794-1872.
