Dates of existence


Henry Owen's edition of George Owen's Description of Penbrockshire [sic] (1603) was published in four volumes between 1892 and 1936. The first two volumes comprised the Description of Pembrokshire [sic], while the third and fourth volumes included general works on Wales and an incomplete work entitled the Description of Wales. Phillimore assisted Owen with the editorial work and shouldered much of the responsibility for the work following Owen's death in 1919. The fifth and final volume was never published but, according to Ll. Wyn Griffith's preface to the fourth volume, individual parts relating to Caernarfonshire and Anglesey were printed between 1913 and 1918.
