by Members of the Art Workers' Guild, Clifford's Inn Hall & Published for the Benefit of the Chest. 15 lithographs and lithographed contents and title sheet. c. 295 mm x 235 mm. Original portfolio. [London, Art-Workers' Guild]
Notable among the lithographers are William Strang's excellent portrait of Emery Walker, a sensitive portrait of a baby and mother by William Rothenstein, and Graily Hewitt's calligraphic title sheet. Joseph Pennell and C.J. Watson provide pictures of the interior of the Guild itself, and T.R. Way, who also printed the lithographs provides a fine picture of the staircase. The portfolios are apparently made by Douglas Cockerell, but the current one, which looks contemporary and so is presumably original, is a fairly perfunctory thing.
