(Gill, Eric)


Gill, Eric (illus.)

London: Faber & Faber, 1933. 16mo. 32pp. Gill's opening engraving, "The Leisure State," hints toward his larger expostulary theme of labor and specifically the displacement of human work as a result of machinery. Gill expands his thesis to encompass the impact of unemployment on society at large, including its ramifications for the family, women, morality, and religion. Originally a lecture entitled "Catholic Principles & Unemployment," delivered at High Wycombe on February 14, 1933. Bound in red printed wrappers. Faint foxing to endpapers and slight creasing to wrapper edges, else near fine. Item #30279

(Gill 25).

Price: $125.00
