What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
The second edition of this work, which was first published in 1799. Featuring numerous additions and notes from Richard Williams.
Illustrated with twelve plates of portraits. Collated, complete.
Billed as the first systematic view of the Welsh aristocracy upon its initial publication, Yorke's work is based on extensive research of historical sources, including ancient Welsh genealogies, medieval chronicles, and royal charters. Yorke traces the origins of the Welsh royal tribes and their lineages, describing their rise and fall, their alliances and conflicts, and their contributions to Welsh history and culture.
With two armorial bookplates to the front pastedown, the first reading 'Theakston', and the second reading 'E. Sloyd Theakston'.
A smart copy of the expanded second edition of Philip Yorke's seminal work of Welsh history.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Bumping to spine head and tail. Marks and residue to rear board. Front hinge significantly strained, and held by cords only. Armorial bookplates to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages generally clean and bright, with only the odd spot.
