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

Golden Cockerel Press, 1925.


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.
