E.G. : Being a Selection of Eric Gills Engravings on Wood. Printed on one side only of handmade paper, with one engraving in red and black. One of 100 copies in an edition of 150. With the scarce dust jacket. No limitation statement in this copy. Dust jacket has some minor shelfwear to the top edge, else fine.

The first (Virgin and Child) is a woodcut that is cut with a knife on the long grain of the wood instead of with a graver on the end grain. It was cut for a poster. No. 5 is added in ink next to the bracketed Virgin and Child on the title page. This book was prepared and published entirely without Gill's knowledge and consent. [Gill: 410].
