2° (300 x 175mm). Title and text within rule border. (Rather soiled and dampstained, a few tears occasionally affect text.) Contemporary blind-stamped sheep (slightly worn). Provenance: Samuel Jones ('his Book 1800', with further inscription at end); David Rowland ('Camarthen 1819'); J.W. Hancock ('Dolgellau 1849'), all inscriptions on title, with Welsh inscription on verso.
The earliest Welsh Concordance to the Bible, printed by Keimer, who had employed Benjamin Franklin, and by Harry, with whom Keimer went to Barbados in 1730. This served as the basis for Peter Williams's Concordance of 1773. This was the second book in Welsh printed in America, preceded by Ellis Pugh's Annerch ir Cymru published by Andrew Bradford in 1721. Sabin 50634; Evans 3323; Bibliotheca Walliae 3619
