    Autograph Letter Signed ("Eric Gill" and "E.G."), to John Gideon Wilson of J. & E. Bumpus Bookshop in London by Gill, Eric

    Villa des Palmiers, Salies-de-Béarn, France, 1927. 2 pp., in green ink. 4to. Some wrinkling, closed tear to blank margin, slight toning, old folds. 2 pp., in green ink. 4to. With architectural drawings and referencing Troilus & Criseyde. Gill writes to his friend, J.G. Wilson of the Bumpus Bookshop in London, regarding his engraving, "Flying Buttresses," mentioning his work on Troilus & Criseyde for the Golden Cockerel Press, and mentioning another of his publishers. An excellent technical letter with 5 small drawings in the text. In part: "I am working like anything on the engravings for the Golden Cockerel Troilus & Criseyde. I expect to finish the engravings by about Easter ... I shall come and see you as soon as possible to talk over things and explain how it happened that D. Cleverdon is publishing my next ... Meanwhile this is just to make a brief apology for myself in the matter of the Buttresses! Is matter of fact they aren't so blooming wrong in the engraving as your correspondent thinks. It's the perspective which makes the difficulty." The engraving in question is "Flying Buttresses," based on a drawing of St. Pierre, Chartes, used to illustrated Gill's 1926 essay "Id Quod Visum Placet." Gill uses the rest of the letter to explain, with the aid of five small sketches, why the perspective is in fact correct. Douglas Cleverdon, the Bristol bookseller and publisher, brought out Gill's Art and Love in 1927, as well as a collection of his engravings in 1929.

"In the Canterbury Tales the pilgrimage device gave Chaucer an opportunity to bring together a band of pilgrims who represented most of the occupations and social groups of his day. The diversity of the narrators in turn made possible an equally varied collection of tales, including chivalric romance, spiritual allegory, courtly lay, beast fable and literary satire. And all the time behind the tales, originating and interrupting them, interpenetrating and linking many of them together, is the great tale of the pilgrimage itself." RG4
