This collection contains correspondence,
artwork, bound manuscripts, ephemera, photographs and other materials by
Robert Gibbings and related to his work.
Robert Gibbings (1889-1958) was an Irish author and artist best known
for his wood engravings. He bought and ran the Golden Cockerel Press in
Berkshire, England from 1924-1933, when the stresses of the Great Depression
forced him to sell the press. During and after World War II he wrote and
illustrated several books on the landscape and natural history of
various rivers (among them, 'Sweet Thames Run Softly', 'Going Down the
Seine' and 'Lovely is the Lee') which resonated with readers concerned
about the effect of war on the changing countrysides.
