The Gestiana edited by Richard Walwyn
'Y Gestiana' was published in Welsh in 1892 and it gives a vivid picture of how the history of the area was understood by a cultured Welshman at the end of the nineteenth century. This original Welsh edition is rare, but there are copies in Bangor University Library and the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth. 'Y Gestiana' was written by Robert Isaac Jones under the pseudonym of Alltud Eifion. Robert Isaac Jones was an pharmacist, printer and littérateur, who wrote and published a handful of books, newspapers and journals. His book is rated very highly by people who have an interest in the history of the area surrounding Porthmadog, and as a reference book it is invaluable.
