Author: Eric Gill
Publisher: Chichester, Chichester City Museum, 1964
First edition of this handout produced to accompany the Gill exhibition in Chichester in 1964. This copy inscribed by Evan Gill, Eric Gill’s younger brother and biographer, to noted collector John Schroder, “For John Schroder from Evan R. Gill August 1964.” With a short TLS from Evan Gill to John Schroder loosely enclosed. “I thought you would be glad to have a copy of this ‘hand-out’. It was an excellent exhibition: something of everything shown - carvings, engravings, drawings, MSS, letters, photographs & books. I hope sufficient interest will be shown by ‘people that count’ to enable the City Fathers to acquire premises for a permanent exhibition.”
8vo., original printed wrappers. Frontispiece portrait of Prudence Tegetmeier, one double-sided plate. A near fine copy.
