JONES, David (1895-1974) ~ Everyman.
Original wood engraving, numbered 6 of 20 by the artist. Titled ‘Illlustration to 15th Cent Morality Play’, signed and dated by the artist in pencil. Image size 165 x 141 mms, sheet size 233 x 222 mms. Mounted and framed. Tiny repair to base of image, otherwise an excellent impression.
A very good impression of the engraving made by Jones for an edition of Everyman suggested as a project by Robert Gibbings which was announced in the Golden Cockerel Press Spring 1932 prospectus but which was later abandoned. According to Thomas Dilworth, he found the medieval morality play ‘utterly’ uncongenial.
