Gregynog Press

The Revelation of St. John the Divine

Wales: Gregynog Press, 1932. Stk. + BS 2825.3 RE48.

The combination of Blair Hughes-Stanton’s artistry as a wood engraver and Herbert Hodgson’s presswork make this one of the finest books to be produced by the Gregynog Press. All of it was achieved despite the rifts between Hughes-Stanton and his wife (Gertrude Hermes, also a skilled illustrator) and William McCance, the Scottish painter and resident printer. By 1933, these individuals had left Gregynog. This copy, no. 176 of 250, was presented to the University Library in 1957 by Arthur Beacham, Professor of Economics, later Vice-Chancellor, and formerly from Aberystwyth, Wales.
