Elias Owen's essay on the folk-tales and legends of North Wales won first prize at the National Eisteddfod for 1887. It was published in revised and enlarged form in 1896, and this paperback is a facsimile of that edition. In his preface the writer states that he is chiefly indebted to the aged inhabitants of Wales, for his information. Such information is less readily available in modern times due to the loss of oral tradition and the rise of mass media, and this is why this folklore book has been reprinted.
