THE following bibliographical list brings together under one general
heading over three hundred articles and notes relating to the history of
Cardiganshire and its people. This fugitive material has been noted
by the compiler during a protracted yet fairly systematic examination
of the main contents of the various issues of more than fifty Welsh
literary and historical periodicals2 which had been published up to
1961. The list also contains references to articles which have appeared
in non-Celtic periodicals published mainly between 1946 and 1961.
With one exception newspaper articles have not been included. It
should, therefore, be made clear at the outset that, although this
bibliography includes articles gleaned from within a fairly wide range
of periodical literature, it may be described as comprehensive rather
than all-inclusive.
In a bibliography of this nature it is only to be expected that a large
proportion of the articles to which it refers will be found within the
pages of the Cardiganshire Antiquarian Society's own publications.3
It has already been intimated that this present bibliography refers to
articles only. The publication of a comprehensive list of printed books
and pamphlets about the history of Cardiganshire is a task which
should be undertaken at a future date. Indeed a modest start was
made to this end in 1924 with the publication of a bibliography of
printed literature relating to the local history of the parishes of Cardi-
ganshire.4 The limitations of this bibliography were declared in the
introductory remarks and the subject need not therefore be discussed
here. It is worth noting also that an unpublished work was compiled in
19165 under the title Llenorion Sir Aberteifi braslun o'u hanes a
rhestr gyflawn o'u gweithiau cyhoeddedig rhwng 1600-1900, yn
gosod allan y lie y'u hargraffwyd, eu dyddiad ac enw'r argraffydd.'
