Eric Gill
The Song of Songs Called by Many the Canticle of Canticles
Waltham St Lawrence, Berkshire: The Golden Cockerel Press, 1925. Eric Gill's superbly illustrated Golden Cockerel edition of the work he called a 'love song'. Copy number 252 of 750 issued. Bound in original cream buckram with gilt spine lettering, light marking to the boards. Internally, a couple of spots and browning to the endpapers as expected and offsetting from the dustjacket - no longer present. Both text and the twenty woodcuts are fine with occasional offsetting from the images. These remarkable images created a wave of criticism in the U.S.A. when first published for being an inappropriate accompaniment to a Biblical text. Eric Gill was unrepentant. 1925
