For those wishing to know: this is a later edition, which a great number 
of changes, from the one I've just posted as eText 40421.  This adds an 
Appendix on the Welsh Triads, supposedly translated by Twm Shon Catti [the 
name occurs with variant spellings].  There's a whole set of textual 
problems with this later edition: although it claims to be by the author 
of the original 1828 book the author thinks his book was first published 
in 1836.  It's riddled with mis-prints and by lacking a full title page 
looks suspicously like a pirated edition.  Nevertheless it introduces some 
new incidents not in the original, and tones down most of the rough plot 
edges of the original too.

All the best,
England, still sunny, clouds fewer having discharged more than enough rain
