  • File
  • [1885x1953] /

Thirteen exercise books, those numbered I-XII containing miscellaneous poetic and prose compositions (many in draft form), by, and in the hand of, Isaac Jones, Diserth, co. Flint [father of Thomas Gwynn Jones, professor of Welsh literature, University College of Wales, Aberystwyth]. The items include 'pryddestau' entitled 'Abel' (a draft and a more finished version, composed for competition at an eisteddfod at Blaenau Ffestiniog, 1891), 'Cartref', 'Y Nefoedd', and 'Naaman y Syriad' (draft) (composed for competition at eisteddfodau or literary festivals at Abergele, 1885, 1889, and 1890, respectively), and 'Y Croeshoeliad'; a draft of a romance in serial form called 'Teulu'r Groesffordd' (seven chapters completed, chapter 8 incomplete); a short story called 'Hywel Tudur yr Hendre'; a draft of the beginning of a novel to be called 'Teulu'r Hafod'; draft or final versions of short dissertations or essays on such topics as 'Geirwiredd' (for competition at an eisteddfod at Llanrwst, 1891), 'Cadwraeth y Sabbath yn ei berthynas a llwyddiant tymhorol' (incomplete), 'Y Ddeddf air Efengyl', 'Y Tair Gardd' (1922), 'Peryglon y Swydd i Ysbryd y Blaenor' (headed by a pencilled note, in another hand, reading 'Papyr a ddarllenwyd yn Nghymdeithasfa Caerlleon, gan Isaac Jones, Dyserth'), and 'Gwyrthiau'; an incomplete copy of a letter referring to tithe legislation, addressed to the editor of Y Faner; and other incomplete fragments. The note-book numbered XIII contains a copy of the poem by T. Gwynn Jones entitled 'Dyddiau y Parch. Richard Owen' [see Dyddiau y Parch. Richard Owen, gyda Chynyrchion Buddugol Ereill, gan Gwynvre ap Iwan a Gwilym Meredydd (Wyddgrug, 1891)]. This is probably the actual holograph copy of the poem, which, under the pseudonym 'Deigryn Hiraeth', T. Gwynn Jones submitted for competition at a literary festival held at Abergele, Christmas 1888. Included with the note-books are a holograph note from Mrs. S[arah] E[lin] Jones, sister of T. Gwynn Jones, undated, a holograph letter from Owen Jones, husband of the said Mrs. S. E. Jones, Diserth, [19]53, and a letter from the said Owen and S. E. Jones, Dyserth, [19]53, [all three to D. Gwenallt Jones, University College of Wales, Aberystwyth], and all relating to the note-books, which were being forwarded to the recipient. Included also are typescript notes compiled by, and bearing the initials of, A[rthur] ap G[wynn] [son of T. Gwynn Jones], listing, and commenting on, the contents of each individual note-book.
