The Gregynog Press was founded in 1922 by two wealthy sisters, Gwendolen and Margaret Davies, as part of a larger institute whose purpose was to promote and teach traditional crafts. The life of Saint David is one of the rarer titles from the press’s best period, and the first to use hand-colored wood engravings. The Grolier Club copy is no. 109 of 175.
