POOL, P.A.S. The Death of Cornish, 1600-1800. (Penzance, Cornwall) : Cornish Language Board, 1982. First thus printing. Revised, with additions and corrections. Pp. (4),5-32, including two illustrations and one map. 8vo, stapled white card covers with black lettering to front cover. The text of the author's April 1975 address to the International Congress of Celtic Studies, at Penzance. "Cornish is unique among Celtic Languages in that it became extinct as a spoken language, apparently for ever, in about 1800. It is also unique in that it has been revived in this past century, to become the only Celtic Language of which the users are now increasing in number rather than decreasing." - from p.5. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping charges will be cheaper than quoted. 15.00
