(n. p.): (n. d.). Gill, Eric. No binding. Near fine. Item #17083215

A wood engraving skillfully rendered by Eric Gill (1882-1940), portraying the Madonna and child; the simplicity of the mark making and rich dark shades convey a deep sense of devotion.

Titled in pencil at foot of buff leaf and signed (or attributed to?) "E. Gill"; we cannot confirm the signature to be Gill's.

___CONDITION: Near fine; cream paper with print is clean overall with a few stray marks, without edge wear; the larger buff paper has some age-toning to the margins but is otherwise clean and without wear.

___CITATION: Skelton P154.
