'Welsh Aedoeology',

Galley proofs, with corrections in Egerton Phillimore's hand, of his 'Welsh Aedoeology', the first part of which was published in the second volume of a German journal entitled Kryptadia in 1884, pp. 323-97. It was widely believed to have been a collection of erotic Welsh literature, and it earned him an unfortunate reputation, but it was in fact a scholarly etymological work. The remainder of the 'Aedoeology' was never published, although it was meant to be continued in Volume III.


Notes, transcripts and drafts of articles published by Egerton Phillimore, 1881-1937, relating to manuscripts, history, literature, genealogy, place-names, grammar, etymology and other linguistic matters, primarily concerning Wales but also including material pertaining to England, Scotland and Ireland, as well as continental Europe. Interspersed among the notes are occasional diary entries and drafts of letters, usually relating to the same topics, as well as containing personal material.
