Bristol Douglas Cleverdon 1930

Two wood engravings by Eric Gill. One of only 50 copies with extra prints of the two engravings in a special compartment at the back, the total edition was 350. 8vo., original quarter vellum, green cloth sides, spine lettered in gilt, uncut, two small ink marks on upper cover, otherwise very good.

The two wood engraved vignettes by Gill are Physick numbers 385 & 386. Cleverdon writes that these blocks were originally engraved by Gill in 1926 for an edition of Disraeli but weren’t used. The blocks later came into Cleverdon’s possession who used them for this story.
