This short study presents the history of the founding of the University of Wales Press, and the work that it accomplished during the first half of the twentieth century. It describes a formative period in the publishing and wider cultural history of modern Wales, and provides a snapshot of the work of a variety of the nation’s most influential scholars and authors during this era. Detailing the key role played by famous literary figures and historians such as T. H. Parry-Williams, W. J. Gruffydd and R. T. Jenkins in the work of the Press Board between 1922 and 1953, it discusses some of the main works and series that were published under the Press’s name during these years. The work of the Press is placed in the wider context of the development of modernism internationally, and of Welsh nationalism, between the world wars.
