THE STORY OF TWO PARISHES DOLGELLEY & LLANELLTYD
This little book is a composite effort to portray, in a popular way, something concerning two Welsh parishes, hidden away under the shadow of Cader Idris and associated with two, at least, great figures of Welsh story - Sir Galahad and Owain Glyndwr. It has a definite, if simple, object in view.
*Mrs Richards, Prof. Fleure, D.Sc., Mr. D. Jones, M.Sc., and Mr Mervyn Pritchard, A.R.I.B.A. have contributed articles on the birds, geology, flora and architecture of the locality.
*The artists are Mr. Horsfall-Turner (8 sketches), Mr. Mervyn Pritchard (2 sketches) and Miss Ann Hughes (3 sketches)
Mr. Mervyn Pritchard has also given invaluable expert advice in regard to illustration.
Mr. Maynard of the Gregynog Press has been kind enough to design the title-page and the mask of Owain Glyndwr on the dust-jacket; and the *print from which the illustration of Glyndwr's old Parliament House has been reproduced, was kindly lent by Mr. Wynne Williams, Dolgelley.
*Finally, His Majesty's Stationary Office has been good enough to lend blocks of 15 illustrations, which appeared originally in the Inventory of the Ancient Monuments in Wales and Monmouthshire. VI County of Merionethshire, London, 1921 published by the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments in Wales.
Invaluable assistance has been rendered, in more ways than it is possible to enumerate, by Mr. Gilbert Phillips, of the Welsh Outlook Press.
To all of these, and to those who have, in other ways, given ungrudging help, the undersigned tenders his warmest thanks and acknowledgments.
Whatever profits there may be from this edition, it is intended to give to the oldest institution there is in Dolgelley - the parish Church and its Schools, which have no endowments, it is to-day in need of help to continue the work it has tried hard to do for nearly 800 years.
