Three programs for musical performances performed at Gregynog


[Newtown, Montgomeryshire]

The Gregynog Press

1923, 1925, 1932


Three programs printed by letterpress at Gregynog. Comprising:

  • A Programme of Music to be Sung by The Aberystwyth Small Choir, 1925
  • A Concert at Gregynog, 16th, July, 1932

Founded in 1922 by the sisters and art patrons Margaret and Gwendoline Davies, the press was named after their mansion Gregynog Hall. It rose to prominence in the pre-war era as among the more important private presses, publishing limited edition books, primarily on a Victoria platen printing press. Much of the printing work from 1927 to 1936 was carried out by the skilled printer Herbert John Hodgson, who had previously worked on the 1926 edition of the T. E. Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
