“John Davies of Mallwyd was, without doubt, one of our very greatest scholars and men-of-letters. He was deserving of a worthy biography more than almost any other Welshman, and in this volume he has found one. Professor Ceri Davies and his collaborators have combined to produce an admirably rounded and readable study of a great man, superb scholar and a modest, lovable human being.” –Sir Glanmor Williams, Journal of the Meirioneth Historical and Record Society
