About This Item

Bangor: Caxton Press, High Street, 1909. Rare Welsh language primer written, illustrated and printed in Bangor. Large oblong quarto with decorative textured red card wrappers with a linen backstrip. Both wrappers and binding are creased and delicate but intact. Staining along the tail of the leaves, coloured red on endpaper from the red wrapper. Original ownership signature of 'Mrs Mois Park Lodge Cemaes Bay Augst 7th 1909' to first endpaper. This 52 page language guide is illustrated throughout to help the young student of Welsh with vocabulary and occasionally a song. The preface describes the inspiration of the book being an encounter with an Australian visitor to north Wales in the summer of 1903 who picked up some of the language during her stay but alerted Mrs Lloyd Jones to the need for an 'Illustrated Welsh Alphabet Book'. We can locate copies at Bangor University and National Library of Wales only. 1909
