About this Item

ISBN-13: 9781584775645; ISBN-10: 1584775645. Probert, William, Translator. The Ancient Laws of Cambria: Containing the Institutional Triads of Dyvnwal Moelmud, the Laws of Howel the Good, Triadical Commentaries, Code of Education, and the Hunting Laws of Wales, to Which are Added, the Historical Triads of Britain. Originally published: London: Sold by E. Williams, 1823. iv, 414 pp. Reprinted 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584775645. ISBN-10: 1584775645. Cloth. New. $110. * Inspired by the spirit of Romantic nationalism, Probert [1790-1870] published this fascinating compilation of ancient Welsh texts to "rouse the dormant spirit" of Cambria so it "may awake from the slumber of ages, shake off that darkness and false taste which Gothic barbarity and tyranny imposed upon her, and re-assume her ancient and splendid greatness" (Dedication). Its contents include the first English translation of the Laws of Howell the Good, which date to the ninth century and are considered by Probert to be the greatest intellectual achievement of medieval Wales. It also contains the first valuation of dogs in the British Isles. In addition to translations, Probert offers an intriguing argument that the trial by jury was not invented by Alfred the Great, but adopted from Dynvwal's Triads. Bookseller Inventory # 41360
