We can but record the appearance of The Black Book

of Carnarvon, Edited by J. Gwenogoryn Evans (Pwllheli, 16s.) The Welsh text has been reproduced in the most elaborate way, all defects or doubtful passages being marked in the text, and there are explanations in the notes. The contents of the Black Book are, at the least, more than six centuries old. Mr. Evans has annotated them, reproducing the oldest text in the most careful way, and adding notes.
