A useful and popular phrase book, often bought with the Welsh-English Dictionary from Geddes and Grosset. Welsh emerged from Celtic and by the second half of the sixth century was a distinct tongue. It is by far the oldest language spoken in Britain today. It is among the oldest in Europe with its origins dating back at least 2500 (and maybe 4000) years ago. This book, with a brief history of Wales, and its customs, is an attractive, handy and informative portable guide for the tourist around Wales. It is inexpensive and an aide for people learning Welsh. Bright, friendly, and an invaluable help for anyone new to the country of Wales or wishing to learn the language.
