A very good Near-A4 sized 197 page (plus index) hardback book. Unmarked and unworn apart from one short closed tear at bottom of front panel of DJ - otherwise could pass for new. Not quite as boring as one might expect - much self-regarding information on committees, council personnel, council events etc of no possible interest to anyone but those featured, But also quite a bit on recent Llanelli events and local history. Well illustrated, in both monochrome & colour.

A Survey of the Duchy of Lancaster Lordships in Wales, 1609-1613., William Rees.
7 A Survey of the Duchy of Lancaster Lordships in Wales, 1609-1613. William Rees.
University of Wales Press. 1953 First Edition. Hardcover Good Poor 
A good 303 page hardback book with owner's signature on front endpaper. Some light pencillling scattered throughout - marginal lines, some underlining - not a lot. Very lightest touch of rub to tips of covers. DJ is tatty with tears, rub and chips. 4 sections, 4 maps & plans. The story of the land has been at the root of many Welsh problems but the land question itself offers no simple solution. It involves a knowledge of the complex relations between society and land in various parts of the country and at different stages of development. Estate books or surveys of the various estates give us our most complete record of proprietary rights and basic customs, and the present series of Surveys, made at the opening of the seventeenth century, provides a singularly complete picture of conditions on the estates of the Duchy of Lancaster at that date. They are the more valuable in that they were compiled at the same time by one and the same surveyor. These estates extended into various parts of South Wales where the extremes of both Welsh and English conditions prevailed. The surveys thus provide us with a cross-section of society in Wales and that at a critical period in its development, some seventy years after the union of Wales with England. The Introduction discusses at length the main issues associated with this problem and traces the rise of the Duchy in Wales. For the local history of the areas of the various Duchy estates, Monmouth, the Three Castles, Kidwelly and Carnwallon, the volume has a special interest.

A very good 559 page hardback book without inscriptions or other marks. DJ front panel is bruised at the bottom fore-edge, otherwise virtually unworn. What a fascinating book! - dip into it and discover, for example, that some time around 1330 the Burgesses of Carmarthen begged the King to remove the Gauge (import charge) from wine being shipped into Carmarthen since it was damaging trade - the neighbouring ports of Haverford(west), Pembroke, Tenby & Swansea never having to pay this gauge were taking all the trade. The King agreed to remove the change. How taxes have always been the bane of our lives!
