The Mabinogion from the Welsh of Llyfr Coch o Hergest (The Red Book of Hergest)

London: Bernard Quaritch, 1877. Hardcover. 4to. Red leather spine, gilt; marbled paper boards; chocolate colored endpapers, top edge gilt. xx,504pp. Engraved vignettes.


Light rubbing to the leather, edges of the boards are worn, but still this is a very good copy.


The second edition of Lady Charlotte Guest's translation form the Welsh, and with a new preface in which she delineates the changes from the first edition, notably in her attempt to "preserve in Saxon English the primitive simplicity of the Welsh original." Very good. Item #21118
