First words
This volume of the Welsh Archaiology may possibly come into the possession of persons who are unacquainted with the language of the materials that are contained in it.

The general advertisement, London, the first day of January, 1801.
The existence of very ancient Welsh manuscripts, in prose and verse, has been announced considerably more than two centuries ago: many respectable English writers have expressed a degree of surprise, and often regret, that these valuable remains of antiquity have never been consigned to the press; and so long have their expectations been disappointed, that hints, and even assertions, have of late been thrown out , that we have none, or none that are authentic; we will however advise such as entertain this opinion to suspend their judgment until the completion of this publication.

A short review of the present state of Welsh manuscripts.
