Thomas Gee (1815-1898) was a Welsh Nonconformist preacher and Welsh-language publisher. The son of a printer, he honed his skills in London. The ‘Encyclopaedia Cambrensis’ or ‘Y Gwyddoniadur Cymreig’, edited by Gee’s brother in law John Parry and published in ten volumes between 1854 and 1879, was the most ambitious encyclopaedia in the Welsh language.
