For those wishing to know: George Borrow was a polyglot who was familiar 
with over 40 languages, and who had a early love of the Celtic languages 
such as Irish and Welsh.  This is a collection of his translations from 
those languages (plus a few of Borrow's own poems) that was made many 
years after his death by Ernest Rhys who was a keen lover of Borrow.  Some 
of the works had not been published, and were published here for the first 

Gutenberg note: the book has a very distinct look with yellowed paper and 
occasional red lettering: it was also a small print run and copies are 
scarce and expensive.  I've therefore mimiced the look of the book a bit 
in the Gutenberg eBook.

All the best,
England, where it's been heavy rain all day, with a cold wind blowing: 
i.e. summer.
