Some light age related markings with a little toning to the spine. The binding remains very tight. Gilt titling to the front board and spine remains bright. Light spotting to the end papers with slight toning to the page edges. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Colour frontis remains clean but lacks the tissue guard. Colour frontispiece and 36 black & white photo plates of drawings & paintings. A very scarce title of which 500 were printed, 200 bound & the remainder were used as wrapping paper. Pound nor Morrow have listed a wrapper. The books is protected in a loose Mylar archival cover. 'Harold Gilman was one of the main instigators in the formation of the Camden Town Group. As the art critic Frank Rutter later recalled, Gilman was an incorruptible puritan, who would have no half-measures, no bargaining, but stood solid for root-and-branch reform and so consistently advocated the formation of a new society . Despite dying at the age of forty-three in 1919, his strong-minded and ardent personality, as revealingly displayed in Walter Sickert s portrait of c.1912 (Tate T00164), meant that he made a lasting impact on the British art world at the beginning of the twentieth century.' (Tate). Marking the centenary of the artist's death, The Pallant Gallery, Chichester has a current exhibition dedicated to the work of Harold Gilman. A very uncommon title.
