Ex Libris Gleeson White by Charles Ricketts


Recently sold on ebay this delightful ex-libris was designed for Joseph Gleeson White by Charles Ricketts - a more 1890s combination one couldn't really find. Gleeson White was the editor of The Studio, an editor and book designer for George Bell and Co., as well as a talented artist in his own right. He was part of a circle of the literatti in Christchurch in Hampshire in the 1890s which included Frederick Rolfe for a while.
Oh, about £50 and no, not to me...
