TEXT in WELSH. "Few people behind the establishment of National Agricultural Society a century ago could have anticipated the continued success of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society as it celebrates its Centenary in 2004. Indeed, during its early years, the society faced open hostility and would have to rise above many difficulties before, by the 1980s, it became one of the four most important agricultural societies of the United Kingdom. In 14 chapters David Howell traces the history of this amazing vision, growth, survival and success. The history includes: - Holding the show at Aberystwyth from 1904 to 1909; Years touring between 1910 and 1962 when they built around 37 'canvas towns' in various towns in North and South Wales; and the troubles of the Society moving to a permanent site at Builth Wells in 1963. With many Amusing anecdotes and a generous collection of archive photographs." TEXT in WELSH. ; Welsh Edition; 4to 11" - 13" tall
