Description Lexicon Cornu-Britannirum, a Dictionary of the Ancient Celtic Language of Cornwall de Robert Williams:

Excerpt from Lexicon Cornu-Britannirum, a Dictionary of the Ancient Celtic Language of Cornwall: In Which the Words Are Elucidated by Copious Examples From the Cornish Works Now Remaining- With Translations in English, the Synonyms Are Also Given in the Cognate Dialects of Welsh, Armoric, Irish, Gaelic, and Manx- Shewing at One View the Connexion Bet The Rev. Robert Williams, author of the learned Lexicon Cornu-Britannicum, just published at Llandovery, states in his preface that Pryce's Cornish Vocabulary, printed in 1770, was so full of errors that he (Mr. Williams) soon felt satisfied that the author was entirely ignorant of the Cornish language, and had no acquaintance whatever with the Welsh. Mr. Williams adds, "The discovery of the original manuscript, now in the possession of Prince Louis-Lucien Bonaparte, shows the work to have been compiled in 1730, by Tonkin or Gwavas, and disingenuously published by Pryce as his own." As I placed on evidence, for the first time, in a letter published in The Cambrian Journal for 1861, the plagiarism of Pryce, and described the volume as the joint production of Tonkin and Gwavas, it seems proper to propose the substitution of the following sentence for that cited above: - "The discovery of the original manuscript, made by Prince Louis-Lucien Bonaparte, has enabled him to show that the work was compiled in 1730 by Tonkin and Gwavas, and disingenuously published by Pryce as his own." Such being the fact, it follows that if the work displays an ignorance of Cornish and Welsh, such ignorance is to be ascribed to the original authors, and not to Pryce, who was only the transcriber of their manuscript.
