COX , JOHN ([ 1800 ]?- 1870 ), printer, bookseller, and postmaster at Aberystwyth, Cards.

G. Eyre Evans , Aberystwyth and its Court Leet ( 1902 ), provides a fairly complete list of the publications from the John Cox press . Among them were two newspapers — The Demetian Mirror; or Aberystwyth Reporter and Visitants’ Informant … , which appeared once a week from 15 Aug. 1840 till 31 Oct. 1840 , and The Aberystwyth Chronicle and Illustrated Times , a weekly paper published between 9 June 1855 and 22 Dec. 1855 . The printing work from the Cox press was usually well produced.
