About this Item

Pen and ink on paper, measuring 8 by 2 3/4 inches, matted and framed. This is Gill's design for a border that appears three times in the Golden Cockerel Press edition of Troilus and Criseyde, and it shows Chaucer sitting in a tree writing "Troilus" in a book. The design appears on pages 179, 243, and 310 of the published work. The drawing is double-matted, and the older, inner mat bears a pencil notation: "Museum study of modern book illustration by Eric Gill," suggesting that the drawing was once part of an exhibit. A fine drawing from one of the highspots of Gill's work as a book illustrator, in a tasteful gilded frame that measures 18 1/4 by 12 1/2 inches (463x317mm). (Skelton P444).
