Welsh historical odes, hymns, etc., chiefly copied from the works of 15th century poets: a colophon on p. 279a gives a date Oct. 24, 1604, but dates up to 1650 or later occur on subsequent pages.

Some English notes and incipits stated to be in the hand of James Henry Cotton, dean of Bangor (about 1840), occur.

356 pages paginated to '330', some injured.
