It is possible that he started printing in June 1796; he may have been a bookseller before that. One of the best examples of his work is his edition, 1823, of David Jones, Blodeu-Gerdd Cymry. His printing office was in Whitford Street in 1828; William Carnes, who was a bookbinder in Well Street at the same time, may have been his brother.
