Book Description

A facsimile collection of two important publications which represent the picturesque travelogues in Wales of the romantic era of 18th-century and early 19th-century Britain.

Included here are a rare 1883 edition of the famous Pennant’s Tours, edited by John Rhys, Celtic Professor at Oxford, with annotations, index, and appendix, together with Wales Illustrated, a collection of more than 100 plates of noted Welsh scenery, with detailed historical and topographical descriptions of each, which today can be used as a valuable visual source of information on Wales in the 18th century.
