Mae Gwasg y Gors yn wasg preifat, sefydlwyd yn 2013. Lleolir yn Nhre-Taliesin yng Ngogledd Ceredigion, ar ymyl Cors Fochno, ein hamcan yw cyhoeddi yn bennaf eitemau o ddiddordeb i hanesyddion lleol. Bydd ein rhestr yn cynnwys llyfrau newydd ynghyd ag ailgyhoeddiadau o hen lyfrau sydd bellach allan o brint (ond sy'n dal i fod o ddiddordeb)

Rydym yn bwriadu hefyd argraffu cyfres o hen gardiau post sy'n dangos yr ardal fel yr bu ganrif neu fwy yn ôl.

Mae gennym sawl prosiect ar y gweill, felly nid oes modd i ni dderbyn ceisiadau.

Rydym yn cyhoeddi llyfrau yn y Gymraeg a Saesneg.

Aberystwyth Official Guide and Souvenir (1924) (c) Nigel Callaghan, Gwasg Y Gors

Aberystwyth Official Guide and Souvenir (1924)

Aberystwyth Official Guide and Souvenir (1924)

This is a facsimile reprint of a guide book originally published by Aberystwyth Corporation in 1924. For anyone interested in the history of West wales, and Aberystwyth in particular, the most fascinating part of the book are the advertisements. Nearly half the book comprises adverts (often illustrated with photographs) from many of the shops, hotels and other businesses active in the town nearly a century ago. These open a fascinating window on the days when the Talbot Hotel (Telephone number '7') advertised a 'Ladies Drawing Room', The Lion Royal Hotel (Tel '8') had an omnibus that met all trains, and the Primrose Motor Co. offered daily trips in their 14-seater Charabanc De Luxe.

A perfect present for residents of Aberystwyth old and new.

Ivor Bowen - Statutes of Wales 1908 (c) Nigel Callaghan, Gwasg Y Gors

Ivor Bowen - Statutes of Wales 1908

Ivor Bowen - The Statutes of Wales (1908)

At a time when the Welsh devolution settlement has given prominence to the relationship between Wales and the Westminster parliament this facsimile reprint of Ivor Bowen’s classic The Statutes of Wales of 1908 brings to the fore a context and depth to that relationship. Bowen’s work reproduces the statutes and statutory provisions concerned specifically with Wales from Magna Carta to the beginning of the twentieth century. It is a book which retains a practical utility, but which also stands as a milestone in Welsh jurisprudence.

Bowen’s original text is reproduced here in full, together with a new preface by the legal historian Richard W. Ireland.

"I am Totally Ruined!"

Who benefited from investment in metal-mining in North Cardiganshire in the mid 19th Century? Nigel Callaghan
A few people made fortunes from the silver and lead mines of North Cardiganshire during the nineteenth century, but many more lost considerable sums investing in mines that failed, whether because they were the victims of fraud or were just rather over-optimistic. But thousands of others still benefited from the failed investments - the miners and their families, the landowners, the shop-keepers and the tradesmen who supplied the mines - and the lawyers! Through a detailed examination of the accounts of one small mine (Pwll Roman in the village of Taliesin) in the 1850s this book uncovers exactly who made a profit from the losses of the misguided investors.

Based on research for a thesis for the MA (Local History) course of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, this book has been expanded to include numerous documents from the Pwll Roman company accounts at Ceredigion Archives, together with letters relating to the history of the Taliesin Mine.
