The inscriptions on p. 81 and p. 83 and the note on p. 82 appear to indicate that they were intended as cover and 'title-page' respectively for a home-made booklet containing a corpus of 'englynion' by Jenkin Richards of Blaenau Gwent, co. Monmouth, extracted mainly 'o Lyfrau Harri Siôn o Bont y Pwl a Llyfr ym Meddiant Rhys Thomas, Argraffydd o'r Bont Faen ym Morganwg', but only four 'englynion', presumably meant to be attributed to this poet, follow on p. 84. Pp. 91-198 contain miscellaneous items including 91-2, notes headed 'On the oldest places of Christian Worship in Wales'; (continued)

93-7, 105-06, notes, generally derogatory, on the character and literary and metallurgical activities of Lewis Morris; 100- 04, notes on 'Welsh Ideas of Celibacy'; 122-8, a transcript of thirty 'englynion' entitled 'Ymatreg Llywelyn a Gwrnerth' attributed to Tysiliaw fab Brochwel Ysgithrawc; 130, a note relating to an 'eisteddfod' held at Y Pil (Pyle, co. Glamorgan), 1740; 131- 41, notes relating to 'singing to the harp', the 'bardd telyn', carol and 'alsain' verse, the adapting of verse to music, etc.; 147-62, transcripts of 'englynion' attributed to Rhobert, Tywysog Norddmanty, Morys Kyffin, Wm. Byrchinsha, and Gutto'r Glyn, extracts from the works of various Welsh poets, etc.; 167, a version of William Midleton's introductory epistle [to his Bardhoniaeth neu brydydhiaeth, y llyfr kyntaf (Llundain, 1593)] copied 'Ex Vol. 40. Mr. Panton' [i.e. Panton MS.40 now NLW MS 2008]; 168-9, five stanzas of a hymn tune attributed to Elis Wynn; 169, a transcript of two 'englynion' attributed to Dr. [John] Davies; 171, a list of the commotes and hundreds of Glamorgan copied from '68. P.P.' [i.e. Panton MS 68 now NLW MS 2034]; 175-88, an alphabetical list of Welsh bards 'o Lyfr D'dd Ddu o'r Eryri'; and 188-98, miscellanea including transcripts of 'englynion' attributed to Siôn Mawddwy, Ieuan Tew, William Philip, and D[afydd] ab Gwilym, miscellaneous triads, genealogical data relating to various Welsh bards and Syr Rhys ap Thomas, etc. Pp. 207-390 (previously paginated 1-184) contain a collection of maxims, proverbs, triads, sayings, etc., attributed to Cattwg Ddoeth and described on a 'title-page' to the section ( p. 199) as 'Llyma Ddoethineb Cattwg Ddoeth o Lancarvan' and in a concluding note (p. 390) as 'Llyfr y cyntaf y Gwyddfardd Cyfarwydd'. In a note on the aforementioned 'title-page' (p. 199) Edward Williams claims to have transcribed this collection in 1799 from a manuscript in the possession of Siams Thomas of Maerdy Newydd, co. Glamorgan. Preceding and following the actual text of the collection are transcripts of a prefatory letter dated 1685 (pp. 201-06) and of the concluding note already referred to (p. 390) both of which are attributed to the Glamorgan scribe and copyist Thomas ab Iefan of Tre Bryn as compiler of the manuscript from which Edward Williams was allegedly copying (see TLLM, t. 172; IM, tt. 291-4). Pp. 391-477 contain a transcript of a collection, in alphabetical order, of over three thousand Welsh proverbs attributed to Cattwg Ddoeth ('Llyma Ddiarhebion Cattwg Ddoeth . . . sef yw hwnn Ail Lyfr y Gwyddfardd Cyvarwydd'). This collection, according to the aforementioned note at the end of the preceding section (p. 390) attributed to Thomas ab Iefan, had been compiled by the said Thomas from various sources and formed a continuation of the previous section. Edward Williams's claim with regard to the Siams Thomas volume is probably intended to apply to the contents of pp. 391-477 as well. The contents of pp. 199-390 have been published in The Myvyrian Archaiology of Wales . . ., vol. III (London, 1807), pp. 1-99.

Many mid-volume and possibly some end folios are also missing. Poems by the following poets are included - Iolo Goch (2), Siôn y Cent (13 ), Siôn Tydyr, Lewys Morgannwg (5), Davydd Epynt, Ieuanap Rydderch ap Ieuan Llwyd (3), Davydd Ddu Hiraddug, Davydd ap Edmwnt (3), Ieuan Brydydd Hir, Davydd Nannmor, Gytto'r Glynn (2), Lewis i Glynn (3), Gryffydd Llwyd ap Davydd ap Enion, Hyw Llvn, Syrr Philip Emlyn, Lle'n ap Howel ap Ieuan ap Gronw (4), William Egwad, Gwilim Tew, Iorwerth Vynglwyd, Howel Swrdwal, Howel Davydd ap Ieuan ap Res (4), Siôn Brwynog, Ievan Tew Brydydd, Thomas Lle'n, Hyw Davi, Rys Goch 'o Vachgarn', Robert Laia, Ieuan Tew Brydydd Ievanc, Risiart ap Rys, Thomas Derllysg (2), Wiliam Cynvol, Siôn Phylib, Edwart ap Rys, Morys ap Howel, Gwyrfyl verch Howel Vychan, and Meredydd ap Rys.

Copïau o farddoniaeth

A volume containing a transcript by William Jones ('Bleddyn'), Llangollen of 'cywyddau', etc. by Edward Morus, Dr Gruffudd Roberts (Milan), Dafydd Nanmor, Dafydd ab Edmwnd, Wiliam Llŷn, Rhys Cain, Iolo Goch, Robin Ddu, Sion Brwynog, Dafydd ab Ieuan ab Owain, Cadwaladr Cesel, Ieuan Môn, Guto'r Glyn, Gruffudd ap Llywelyn Fychan, Syr Dafydd Trefor, Ieuan ap Madog ap Dafydd and Gruffudd Llwyd ap Dafydd ab Einion [Llygliw].

Cywyddau, etc.

An imperfect composite volume written in a number of hands but mainly in a late sixteenth century hand. The following note by J. H. Davies is written on one of the upper fly-leaves: 'This MS is supposed to be in the hand of Sion Brwynog (see Cwrtmawr MS 11.493). It was copied by the Rev. David Ellis, then of Amlwch in 1777 and was then perfect. The copy is now MS 11 in my collection'. This supposition cannot be correct since Siôn Brwynog died in 1562 and some of the poems were composed after that date. The hand also differs from that in Peniarth MS 61 which J. Gwenogvryn Evans tentatively attributed to Siôn Brwynog (See also Eurys I. Rowlands 'Llaw dybiedig Siôn Brwynog', Cylchgrawn Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru (The National Library of Wales Journal), Vol. VII, pp. 381-2). The volume contains 'cywyddau' and a few 'awdlau' by Mathew Bromffild, Tudur Aled, Jhon Brwynog, Lewys Mon, Jhon Tudur, Rys Goch Glynn Dyfrdwy, Morys ap Ieuan ap Einion [Morus Dwyfech], Gwilym ap Sefnyn, Gvttor Glynn, Howel Reinalld, Wiliam Llyn, Lewis Daron, Dafydd Pennant, Roger Kyffin, Gwilym ap Ifan Hen, Gvttvn Owain, Cynwig ap Dafydd Goch, Owain ap Ll[ewelyn ap y] Moel, Rys Goch yr Yri (Rys goch ap D'd), Robin Ddv Fardd, Tudur Penllyn, Rys Pennarth, Lewys ap Edwart, Lewys Daron, Lewys Menai, Robert Ifans, Lewys Morgannwg, Owain Waed Ta, Gruff. Gryg, Iolo Goch, Grvffydd Llwyd ap D'd ap Einion and Hvw Pennant; English verses by J[o]hn Powell and Hu: Powell; etc. There are marginal and other annotations by William Maurice, Cefn-y-braich, ?William Wynn, Llangynhafal and David Ellis, Cricieth, and a transcript by the latter of the greater part of the volume forms Part II of Cwrtmawr MS 11. Some of the pages which have been repaired have also been made up by a later hand and the ink in these portions has faded badly. One page of the volume has been made up by J. H. Davies. The spine is lettered 'Llyfr Kywyddau'.
