A manuscript volume with the words 'MABINOGI GERAINT' in gold lettering on the spine. The manuscript contains a transcript of the tale 'Geraint fab Erbin' from 'Llyfr Coch Hergest' [ff. 769-809] as the title on page 1 suggests: 'Llyma mal y treuthir o Ystorïa Geraint vab Erbin. O Lyvyr Coç Hergest Pal. 769'. The watermark '1802' is found on the front endpapers. The text which is found on pages 1-102 is entirely in the hand of William Owen [-Pughe]. On pages 105-7 is a poem beginning 'See man delightful subject . . .' by Thomas Wilks; it is preceded by the following note: 'Thomas Wilks, 38, Bow Lane, Cheapside, who served his time with an ironmonger, at Swansea, called on me to-day, April 22, 1826, with his translation of the first vision of Bardd Cwsg, for me to look over. He is now about becoming a preacher among the Methodists: he told me that he had some intention of turning the Messiah of Klopstock into English verse. . .' A note on the back fly-leaf reads 'Doctor Rt. Williams - Box Moor near Hemel Hempstead - 2 Waters'.
