Forgotton Books are best forgotten,
This review is from: The Four Ancient Books of Wales (Forgotten Books) (Paperback)
It's very disappointing that the caveat printed inside the cover of this and other 'Forgotten Books' publications isn't reproduced on the Amazon listings - 'this book has been scanned and reformatted from the original, and as such as cannot guarantee that it is free from errors or contains the full content of the original'. So full of errors that after just a couple of pages I had to get a pencil to mark my own corrections. The text has been very badly corrupted and as both English and Welsh are involved this makes reading both difficult and dispiriting. Don't waste your money on something with such poor production standards.

interesting that red valerian's review is a carbon copy of his review for another 'forgotten books' publication, reviewing or grinding axes, I wonder?

No, forgotten books are known for their appalling reproduction standard. He probably just got fed up and copy+pasted his other reviews to let people know about this. (I recently ordered their "Casey's sequel to Euclid" and experienced the same thing.)
