A dictionary of the Welsh language explained in English : with numerous illustrations, from the literary remains and from the living speech of the Cymmry to which is prefixed a Welsh grammar; Vol 2 is supplemented by An Outline of the Characteristics of the Welsh - four parts in two volumes
Denbigh : Printed and Published by Thomas Gee : and may be had of Longman, Rees, Orme, and Green,. London. 1832 - Two heavy quarto volumes, sympathetically re-jointed thus preserving most of the original cloth on spines; publisher's ochre cloth with original printed paper spine labels; rough cut top edges; replaced end-papers. Vol I [pt. 1]: A grammar of the Welsh language (2nd ed., Denbigh, 1832) - [pt. 2]: A dictionary of the Welsh language [A-D]. Vol. 2 [pt 1]: A dictionary of the Welsh language [E-Y] - [pt 2]: .An outline of the characteristics of the Welsh (1832). Vol I has illogical pagination, but text is complete. Vol I pp: [i-viii],[1-5], 6-131, [1], [v], vi-xiv, [2], [1], 2-515; Vol II pp: 687, [1-3], 4-55. Vignette illustration of a cromlech on title pages. Bindings are sturdy as are both text blocks; cloth has age-dulled, and spines and spine labels have age-darkened further with some of the lettering obscured. Boards have worn fore-corners, and where the more recent cloth replacement can be seen is where the original cloth had worn away at spine ends and outer hinges. Apart from foxing to some leaves and to title pages, leaves are generally very clear and fairly crisp, and a small number are unopened. Frontis portrait of author is lacking in Vol I, and dedication page has a ragged and creased lower edge. No inscriptions or annotations. A nicely preserved set of a scarce Welsh dictionary. PLEASE NOTE: This is a heavy item and extra towards delivery cost may be requested. An enquiry is recommended - especially for overseas delivery.
