This is volume 1 of The Barddas of Iolo Morganwg; a collection of writings about ancient Welsh beliefs. Although the author of this work is cited as J. Williams, he was actually the editor, who pieced it together from manuscripts written by Iolo Morganwg. Dressed as an authentic compilation of ancient Welsh bardic and druidic theology and lore, its contents are largely Iolo's inventions. Although he was seen as an expert collector of Medieval Welsh literature, it emerged after his death that he had actually forged several manuscripts, notably some of the Third Series of Welsh Triads. Even so, he had a lasting impact on Welsh culture, and the philosophy he spread in his forgeries has had an enormous impact upon neo-Druidism.

This book has 90,576 words, 171 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1862.
