Description

Eric Gill Three Wood Engravings on One Sheet.

Three wood engravings by Eric Gill printed on one sheet with the page number 57 in top right corner. Printed on textured cream wove paper.  As the paper differs from the edition of 400 copies, I  assume that this is a printer’s proof prior to publication of the book. UNSIGNED. There is an old mount stain which can be mounted out, otherwise in good condition.
Sheet size 30 x 240m
