This book narrates the history of Owain Myfyr (Owen Jones) - from his birth in Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr in 1741 through to his death in London in 1814. It pays particular attention to his career as a literary sponsor. The book also explores the centrality of Owain to the welsh antiquarian movement that blossomed in London during the period 1787-1807. Without his vision, leadership and readiness to spend his own money on sponsoring scholars the intense activity of this period would not have been possible. This will be the first attempt to write a biography of Owain Myfyr. Unil now, very little has been written specifically on him. Most of what is available tends to misrepresent his understanding of those manuscripts in which he so readily invested his own money. This manuscript, however, will try to reach a more balanced conclusion by analysing the available evidence and giving a more detailed deconstruction of his character and legacy. Despite not being a scholar,as such, he came to influence many of the key Welsh scholars of his day and continued to be an influence after his death.
