Liber coronacionis Britanorum: Llyfr coroni'r Brythoniaid: The book of the crowning of the Britons - vol. 1 (2 vols)
Liber Coronacionis Britanorum ('The Book of the Crowning of the Britons') is an unpublished Middle Welsh adaptation of Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain, focusing on the succession of British kings and queens from Brutus down to Vortigern, Arthur, and Cadwaladr. Patrick Sims-Williams edits it from a manuscript of c. 1500, in which the narrative — for the first time in Wales — is illustrated. All 59 colour illustrations are included at the appropriate place in the narrative, and missing parts of the text are restored from nine fragmentary copies, one of them written by a supporter of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd (d. 1282). This edition enables modern readers for the first time to enjoy this once popular work and its unique illustrations.
