Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Eric Gill Collection contains over 400 items surrounding Eric Gill’s work and life. This collection consists of many of Eric Gill’s own books along with those for which he was the artist. Additionally, the collection includes drawings, printings, and ephemera, such as his daughter’s wedding invitation he created a wood engraving for and the materials towards his works, such as woodblocks for the Golden Cockerel Press’s The Canterbury Tales (1929-1931). The highlights of this collection feature original drawings, including several for the wood engravings of the Golden Cockerel edition of The Constant Mistress (1934), and drawings for their edition of Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. Famous for his typefaces, another item of interest is a 1906 alphabet written by Gill that exhibits the influence of designer Edward Johnson on Gill’s work. This collection provides a deep and substantial overview of Eric Gill’s work and processes. The items are divided into six series. Series 01: Books by Gill, Series 02: Ephemera, Series 03: Prints, Series 04: Drawings, Series 05: Correspondence, and Series 06: Reference Materials.

Collection Historical Note

The Library purchased this collection in 2005. The Eric Gill Collection was built over nearly 70 years since the 1930s by Charles P. Gould, a book collector from Pasadena, California, and includes over 400 items of Gill’s books, printings, drawings, correspondence, and engraved woodblocks for printing. Previously, in 2001, the Library purchased the Triple Crown Collection, a collection of books and printing ephemera from the legendary English Arts and Crafts presses, the Kelmscott, Doves, and Ashendene, which Charles P. Gould also collected and includes over 1,000 items, including items connected to Eric Gill, such as a woodblock of Gill’s Utopia type for the Ashendene Press and a Doves Press edition of Shakespeare’s Sonnets for which Eric Gill was an engraver.
