SHORT NOTICES The third edition of J. R. Lander, Conflict and Stability in Fifteenth- Century England (Hutchinson University Library, 1977) 222 pp.; £ 2.50), contains some reworked passages: on sheep and depopulation (pp. 34-37); on Lollardy (pp. 115-6); and on the necessarily other than single-minded approaches of Edward IV and Henry VII to increasing their revenues (pp. 103-4, 107, 110). The bibliography might have been more thoroughly amended on this occasion. A review of the first edition appeared ante, V (December 1970), 183-84. The Clwyd Record Office issued three new publications in late 1977. A Handlist of the Topographical Prints of Clwyd (Denbighshire, Flintshire and Edeyrnion), compiled by Derrick and A. G. Veysey, pp. 102 ( £ 1.85; £ 2.18 by post), lists over a thousand topographical prints in the Record Office at Ruthin. There is an excellent introduction together with twenty- four superb illustrations. It is the second handlist in the series published by the Record Office. The Greenfield Valley, compiled by K. Davies and C. J. Williams for the Holywell Town Council, pp. 40+31 plates (90p; £ 1.02 by post), is a lavishly-illustrated account of the industrial history and archaeology of the Greenfield Valley, Holywell. The Annual Report of the County Archivist for 1977 (pp. 36) includes a useful article on local parish registers. All are available from the Clwyd Record Office, The Old Rectory, Hawarden, Deeside, CH5 3NR. The Gwynedd Record Office, Caernarvon, published in July 1978 its Bulletin No. 3 for 1976, pp. 81, with over two dozen photographs (50p). In addition to an attractive miscellany of items to illustrate recent access- ions, it also includes an article by H. G. Williams on the career as a schoolmaster of William George, the father of David Lloyd George. The Bulletin is also adorned by a notable photograph of a meeting at Downing Street in 1916 (?1917) of Lloyd George, Sir Henry Jones and the Reverend John Williams, Brynsiencyn, the last, ironically for the apostle of the Prince of Peace, arrayed in full military garb. The National Library of Wales Journal, XX, No. 2 (Winter, 1977) included as its most substantial item an article on medieval hospitals in Wales and the Border, by Dr. John Cule, with full documentation. Wynford Davies discusses aspects of the 1889 Welsh Intermediate Edu- cation Act in Carmarthenshire. The same journal for the Summer of 1978 (XX, No. 3) contains articles on St. David by T. Thornley Jones,
