Print for Henry VIII.

Gill, Eric (illus.)

(Ditchling, East Sussex: c. 1938). Wood engraving on paper. One of ten copies, signed and numbered by Gill. This is a separately-issued print of one of Gill's illustrations for Shakespeare's Henry the Eighth, commissioned by the Limited Editions Club and published in 1939. The book was one volume of a thirty-seven volume set, each one featuring a contemporary artist as illustrator, in line with the LEC's usual modus operandi. Gill's contributions lean into the sexuality less popular in Shakespearan discourse then, but certainly in vogue in both scholarship and pop culture now. Matted and framed, fine. (Frame measures 20 1/4 by 14 1/4 in.). Item #32283

(Skelton, P 926).
