Barddoniaeth, &c.

A composite volume, the first portion of which (pp. 1-78, old foliation 1-38), written in the early eighteenth century, contains selections from Flores poetarum, triads, englynion, the divisions of Wales (pp. 29-33), cywyddau, poems in free metre, and an incomplete table of the contents of the latter portion of the volume (pp. 57-59). The second part of the volume (pp. 79-406, old foliation 1-245 with gaps) has been neatly written in two or more hands, one of the seventeenth century and the others of the early eighteenth century. It contains Welsh poems in strict and free metres from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries, many of them either of Anglesey interest or written by Anglesey poets, particularly Lewis Môn, Sion Brwynog and John Griffith of Llanddyfnan.
Among miscellaneous items are copies of the Articles of Agreement between the Parliamentary Commissioners and the inhabitants of Anglesey, 1648 (pp. 295-296); Sir Edward Trevor's riddle (p. 312); and a short bardic grammar (pp. 358-362).
