The Song of Songs, called by many the Canticle of Canticles.
Golden Cockerel Press, Waltham St Lawrence 1925 - 20 wood engravings by Eric Gill. Printed in black and red in Caslon Old Face type. Pp. 44. 4to., original white buckram. Slight browning to endpaper as usual but otherwise a very clean, bright copy. Canticleer announces that at this point 'Eric Gill has come to work only for the Golden Cockerel Press' - the beginning of a great collaboration. The wood engravings here are very beautiful and strong. Gill once wrote that he refuted the notion that because it is about love-making and the charms of women, the Song of Songs is irreligious. The problem he notes is that "the Song of Solomon is a love song, and one of a very outspoken kind, and in modern England such things are not considered polite". [Attributes: Hard Cover]
