Following on from Celtic Linguistics 1700-1850, this set covers the period 1850-1900, which saw the foundation of the modern subject of Celtic linguistics. Several important works are reproduced here, including: * Johann Kaspar Zeuss's seminal study, Grammatica Celtica (1853), the first text to formulate a detailed and comprehensive comparative grammar of the Celtic language. * John Rhys' Lectures on Welsh Philology (1877), and Whitley Stokes' Celtic Declension (1885), both of which reflect Zeuss's influence on the field. * Earlier traditions of the historical study of the Celts, with an emphasis on language, are continued in John Jones Thomas's Britannia Antiquissima; or, A Key to the Philology of History (1860). * Neo-druidic themes receive attention in John Williams's Gomer; or, A Brief Analysis of the Language and Knowledge of the Ancient Cymry (1854). This set covers a period of fundamental reformation in Celtic linguistics, and will be of interest to linguists, historians, and cultural theorists.

The existence of the Welsh-language can come as a surprise to those who assume that English is the foundation language of Britain. However, J. R. R. Tolkien described Welsh as the ‘senior language of the men of Britain’. Visitors from outside Wales may be intrigued by the existence of Welsh and will want to find out how a language which has, for at least fifteen hundred years, been the closest neighbour of English, enjoys such vibrancy, bearing in mind that English has obliterated languages thousands of miles from the coasts of England.

This is the first volume to examine how the history of Wales was written in a period that saw the emergence of professional historiography, largely focused on the nation, across Europe and in the United States. It thus sets Wales in the context of recent work on national history writing in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and, more particularly, offers a Welsh perspective on the ways in which history was written in small, mainly stateless, nations. The comparative dimension is fundamental to the volume's aim, highlighting what was distinctive about Welsh historical writing and showing how the Welsh experience mirrors and illuminates broader historiographical developments. The book begins with an introduction that uses the concept of historical culture as a way of exploring the different strands of historiography covered in the collection, providing orientation to the chapters that follow. These are divided into four sections: 'Contexts and Backgrounds', 'Amateurs and Popularizers', 'Creating Academic Disciplines', and 'Comparative Perspectives'. All these themes are then drawn together in the conclusion to examine how far Welsh historians exemplify widespread trends in the writing of national history, and thereby point-up common themes that emerge from the volume and clarify its broader significance for students of historiography.
