This 4-volume study of the poetry of Siâms Dwnn, son of the heralidc bard Lewys Dwnn (ob. c. 1616), contains a wealth of new material relating to the gentry of Montgomeryshire in particular, during the first half of the seventeenth century – many of their houses are depicted in a series of photographs, prints and pictures (The significance of the Battle of Montgomery (1644) is also discussed in an Appendix). The poet himself seems to have belonged to the same stock as his great contemporary, John Donne, Dean of St. Paul’s.
