The Great Storm of October 1987 and its Aftermath



Society of Wood Engravers, 1989.

Following The Great Storm which ravaged the tree population of the Southern counties of England, October 15-16, 1987, The National Trust asked the Society of Wood Engravers to commemorate this historic “weather bomb” with wood engravings using the theme of “The Tree”. The Society of Wood Engravers responded with a suite of 5 large wood engravings held in a handsome drop-back box. This is number 13 of 250 sets printed by Simon Lawrence on Zerkall mould-made paper. The contributing wood engravers were Monica Poole (230X160 mm.), Claire Dalby (70X110 mm.), Peter Reddick (211X274 mm.), George Tute (140X190 mm.) and Peter Smith (180X128 mm.). Each separately mounted engraving signed, titled and numbered 13 out of 250. Accompanied by a 4 pp. leaflet of “Notes” on the 5 wood engravings. The engravings held in a blue cloth covered drop-back box lined with decorated paper after a wood engraving by Simon Brett. Paper title label on spine and upper cover. A fine copy.
