Llyfrau Cantre’r Gwaelod

Llyfrau Cantre’r Gwaelod is an offshoot of CSP-Cymru Cyf., established in 2016 with the aim of bringing back into print lost Welsh literary classics of the nineteenth century. Its volumes incorporate a scholarly edition of the original texts, with an accompanying introduction. Jane Aaron, Emeritus Professor at the University of South Wales, is the series editor, and Rita Singer, Research Fellow at the University of Bangor, edited and introduced its two inaugural publications, T. J. Llewelyn Prichard’s The Adventures and Vagaries of Twm Shôn Catti (1st edition, 1828) and Thomas Richards’ Rob the Red-hand and other Stories of Welsh Society and Scenery (selected from Richards’ publications in British and Tasmanian periodicals of the 1820s and 1830s).
