Poetry and a history of Owain Glyndŵr

A composite volume mostly in the autograph of Evan Evans (Ieuan Fardd), containing poetry by Dafydd ap Gwilym, Cynddelw, Guto'r Glyn and Ieuan Fardd and others, some of it 'collected by Dr. Davies of Mallwyd ... [and] transcribed from a MS. which belonged to Bp. Humphreys' (see f. 1) (ff. 1-48, 61-155); a History of Owain Glyndŵr 'out of William Morris [Maurice] of Llansilin's book' (ff. 49-59); etc.
A letter, 7 September 1792, from Hy Hughes, Pencraig, to 'David' is pasted in at the end of the volume.

William Charles Dyer manuscript

A volume (ff. i, 1-68) containing transcripts, 1761-1763, of poetry, and some prose, in the hand of William Charles Dyer, nephew of John Dyer, dating from his time as an undergraduate at St Edmund's Hall, Oxford, where he matriculated in February 1761.
Amongst the poems are 'On the Earth-Quakes at Lisbon', a version of John Dyer's 'On the Destruction of Lisbon' [see NLW MS 23297B, f. 53] (f. 1), 'The Princess Elizabeth' by [William] Shenstone (ff. 22, 23), 'The Nymph Complaining for the Death of her Fawn' by [Andrew] Marvell (ff. 32-37), 'Virtue and Fame' by [George] Lord Lyttelton (ff. 37-38), and three poems, in English and Latin, ascribed to fellow students at Oxford, including William Flower, 2nd Viscount Ashbrook (ff. 39-50). The remaining poems are unattributed but seem to be broadly contemporary. Also included are items found loose within the manuscript, including a letter to 'The Revd Mr Dyer' from Bennett Langton and notes on Langton in the hand of W. H. D. Longstaffe (ff. 69-72) as well as loose items removed from other books acquired with the volume, including a manuscript poem 'To Dyer (the Poet)', [1860s] (watermark 1863), and further notes by Longstaffe (ff. 73-82).

Dyer, William Charles, 1741-1828
