From the inside front fly leaf: Many guides and books have been written about Llandaf Cathedral, but this is the first book to deal with the village-city of Llandaf as a whole. Although the Cathedral is justly famous as one of the oldest in Britain it is not the only thing to be seen in llandaf, for as the book shows, there are many other features of the 'city within a city' which are also of interest and worthy of attention. The book traces the history of Llandaf from medievial times to the modern day, and includes chapters on:

  • The origins of llandaf
  • The Medieval Lordship and Borough of Llandaf
  • Llandaf in decline
  • 18th Century Revival
  • 19th Century development and growth
  • 20th century - a City within a City
  • The Cathedral
  • The Bishop's Castle
  • A Short Tour of the City
  • Other places of interest

The condition of the book is generally good. The dust jacket has some minor scuffs, blemishes and creases, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished, and tightly bound.
