Book Description London, Jonathan Cape 1931., 1931. First edition, in the ordinary trade printing (there were also 160 numbered copies in a more expensive binding, signed by the author). Gill was a would-be clothes reformer, favouring the idea that men should wear robes, a kilt or a skirt rather than trousers, and also, more covertly, a supporter of naturism, at least in appropriate circumstances. The book is illustrated by woodcut frontispieces or headpieces to each chapter, all in Eric Gill?s characteristic sculpture-based style. 8vo. (4) + 196 + (4)pp, woodcut text ills. Publisher?s cloth, a little worn and faded. Gavin Stamp?s copy, with his booklabel. Seller Inventory # 14678

Book Description Jonathan Cape [Printed by Walter Lewis at the University Press, Cambridge], London, 1931. Hardcover. Condition: Near fine. Gill, Eric (illustrator). Limited Edition. No. 129 of 160, octavo size, 206 pp., signed by Eric Gill. Clothing has long been an integral part of society, and can be used to reflect diverse religious and cultural identities. In this essay, Eric Gill (1882-1940) discusses the significance of clothes in society and argues for a more egalitarian approach to clothing; for example, Gill advocates the suitability of men's clothing (trousers) for women, as a way to liberate the sexes and create a more equal society. Gill provides wood engravings for the book, illustrating his concepts and showcasing his masterful rendering of the technique; his illustrations have a slightly satirical slant while evoking the pathos of his arguments. ___DESCRIPTION: Quarter brown pigskin with marbled paper boards, gilt rules and lettering on the spine, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges uncut, illustrations include title page device "Woman Dancing" (P712); "Art and Prudence" (P714); "Clothes as Houses" (P715); "Clothes as Workshops" (P716); "Clothes as Churches and Town Halls" (P717); "Clothes for Special Parts" (P718); "The Tyranny of Tailors" (P719); "Nature and Nakedness" (P720); "Trousers" (P21); and a tailpiece of "Trousers and Spats" (P722); octavo (7.5" by 5.25"), pagination: [i-vii] [1-2] 3-196 [197-198] [1 colophon], one of 160 copies, this number 129, signed "Eric G" on the colophon. ___CONDITION: Volume is near fine, with clean boards, straight corners, a strong, square text block with solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and entirely free of prior owner markings; some slight rubbing to the bottom edges of the boards and to the corners, a faint stain to the gutter of Contents page, and very slight cracking to the gutter at pages 128 and 129, but hinges are still tight. ___CITATION: Gill 22. ___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.
