A unsigned wood engraving as published in Douglas Cleverdon edition ‘Engravings 1928-1933 by Eric Gill’. The wood engraving was printed the original woodblock by Gill and Hague in 1934. This edition is rare and was printed in a small edition size. The sheet has some light foxing which I am unable to photograph and some old soft handling folds, all of which are in the margins, else good.
