GOLDEN COCKEREL PRESS. GILL, Eric (illustrator). The Song of Songs, called by many The Canticle of Canticles.

Golden Cockerel Press, 1925.

£1600


Crown 4to. Original white buckram, spine lettered in gilt, edges untrimmed; vignette on title (printed in red) and 18 other wood-engravings by Eric Gill, initial letters printed in red; some embrowning to the free-endpapers otherwise a very nice copy.

No. 683 of 750 numbered copies. Gill's first major work for the Golden Cockerel Press and a landmark in his development as an artist, this a powerful response to the most sensual book of the Bible.
