The Eric Gill Collection (1894-1940) comprises works representing most of the life's work of the artist's career as a carver, illustrator, printer, and type designer. The largest part of the collection is the print collection with over 4200 objects. There are also 530 drawings not relating to the prints, and 30 carvings and sculptures. The collection was acquired for the most part in 1963 from the collectors Mr. and Mrs. S. Samuels. The Ransom Center published the catalogue The Eric Gill Collection of the Humanities Research Center: a Catalogue in 1982, which describes most of the collection and has a few illustrations. A copy is in the Ransom Center library.
