The Life of Saint David (Gregynog)
The Gregynog Press 1927. An edition limited to just 150 copies, 250*190 mm. In cream limp vellum. Spine with title in gilt. Internally, no inscriptions, [4], 41 pp, [3], 25 wood engravings, (hand coloured by Maynard and Bray), chapter openings in pale blue, initial letters in red and paragraph marks in red, drawn with a quill by HW Bray, a little browning to gutter of fep and rep only, pd's have risen slightly. House in its original card slipcase, title in white to red paper label. This binding represents the only use of vellum by the bindery and was not a material in which Fisher was familiar. The text, freely collated by Ernest Rhys, is based upon the Latin Life by Rhygyfarch (1057-1099) & upon the later lives. The picture of St. David on the title page was drawn from a brass, dated 1476, in Hereford Cathedral. Probably the most difficult Gregynog title to obtain. (Harrop 7) Robert Ashwin Maynard, Painter; Wood cutter and Illustrator and Horace Walter Bray, were at Gregynog from 1922 to 1930.
