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 August 1840 till 31 October 1840, and The Aberystwyth Chronicle and Illustrated Times, a weekly paper published between 9 June 1855 and 22 December 1855. The printing work from the Cox press was usually well produced.
