All communications should be addressed to "The Librarian, Central Library,Cardiff." * * * * Owing to pressure on our space, the monthly list of Recent Additions to the Welsh Department is held over till next month. SPECIAL BIBLIOGRAPHIES. No. i.—Dr. Lewis Edwards, of Bala. In addition to the reading lists on special subjects, it is intended to print in the REVIEW, from time to time, special bibliographies of individual writers likely to be of interest. The recent celebrations of the centenary of the birth of Dr. Lewis Edwards, of Bala (born October 27th, 1809; died July 19th, 1887), have aroused considerable interest, and an attempt has been made in the following bibliography (compiled by Mr. Ifano Jones, Librarian- in-charge of the Welsh Department), to bring together all the literature by and about him. The shelf-number of every item in the Library is given, and it will be found that nearly all the literature concerning Dr. Edwards is contained in the Welsh Department of the Central Reference Library. The Libraries' Committee will be glad to obtain copies of his works not already in the Library. Biography and Criticism. Adroddiad...enwau tanysgrifwyr...tuag at dysteb y Parch. L.
