An unpublished historical and topographical account of Wales by John Gwynne of Llanidloes, co. Montgomery, Surveyor of North Wales and servant to Sir William Herbert, first Earl of Pembroke, the author's presentation copy to Sir William Cecil (later Lord Burghley), with a correction in Cecil's hand on f. 8 verso. The text, in English apart from Latin sub-headings, with marginal notes, is written in alternating Secretary and Italic scripts and is preceded by a dedicatory letter (f. 3 recto-verso). Folios 8-11 verso carry thirty-four coats of arms; and f. 20 verso carries a plan of the Welsh royal court similar to the illustrations found in BL Add. MS 22356 and NLW Llanstephan MS 116. A transcript of the same text, contained in Cardiff MS 3.11 (RMWL MS 50), pp. 27-94, has been published in Archaeologia Cambrensis 1915.
Gwynne, John, surveyor of North Wales.
