Notes area


As The National Library of Wales has been fortunate to acquire a number of groups of papers which relate to the business of Gwasg Gee since 1936, they were albeit catalogued as separate collections. However, whilst listing the 2018 donation, it was decided to bring together three fonds level descriptions (namely Gee Printing Company Records, Morris T. Williams Manuscripts and Charles Charman MSS), nine individual NLW MSS (namely NLW MSS 10897, 19621-19626 and 20151-20152) and one NLW ex (NLW ex 2090) together with the most recent acquisition to form a new archival fonds which will hopefully improve the accessibility of the collection.
