JONES, Thomas. The Gregynog Press. A paper read to the Double Crown Club on 7 April 1954 by Thomas Jones C.H. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1954.

Tall 8vo., original blue cloth, with inset paper label printed in red and black to upper board; in the original unclipped jacket (12s. 6d. Net) printed with the same design; pp. [viii], 39, [i]; containing examples of engravings by Robert Ashwin Maynard, Horace Walter Bray, Blair Hughes-Stanton and Agnes Miller Parker; endleaves lightly offset; boards a touched bumped to corners, else a near-fine example, with a duplicate label tipped-in at end; in a good jacket which is complete but rather browned to both panels and spine, chipped and rubbed to spine and along the upper edge.
Limited to just 750 copies, this example is signed by the speaker to the half-title, and is additionally inscribed by him on the half-title: "For Norman Jones from the talker. 17 June 1955". The lecture text is followed by a wonderful bibliography of the Press. Loosely inserted is a handlist from the National Museum of Wales.
Scarce thus.
