With fold-out maps, including a Dialect Map of Carmarthenshire and maps of Megalithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age sites and finds, as well as many illustrations within the run of the text. 374 pages (including appendices) plus fold-out map at end. Volume 2: From the Act of Union (1536) to 1900; also with fold out maps and well-illustrated. 549 pages plus fold-out map at end. Condition: Boards worn, rubbed, bumped and faded, although sound.

The maps are all in good condition, although the edges of some are rolled from careless re-folding into the book.
