Descripción The Golden Cockerel Press, Waltham Saint Lawrence, 1936. Leather bound. Estado de conservación: Near fine. Gill, Eric Ilustrador. Limited Edition. Crown quarto - over 9.75" - 12" tall, 182 p., Signed by both Author and Illustrator. No. 22 of 62 bound in full morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, total edition 200; with Prospectus; originally published with a separate suite of the eight prints, lacking in this volume. Patrick Miller was the pen name of architect and WWI hero George Gordon Macfarlane (1885-1949) who knew some of those in the London literary circle via his sister, the author Catherine Roxburgh Carswell. Initially an engineer and architect by training and trade, Macfarlane focused more attention on his writing after an illness in 1929; he chose the pseudonyn of Patrick Miller (an ancestor) and wrote several novels, including this one. The Golden Cockerel Press published three of these, and a friendship which Macfarlane had with Eric Gill prompted the two to collaborate on The Green Ship. The bibliography notes that The Green Ship "is a book we should treasure with us, for its constant entertainment, if wrecked on a desert island". With eight wood-engravings by Eric Gill, the most inspired of the wood-engravers of his day - many would say of all of the 20th century - and who perfectly synthesized his religious convictions with his love of the human form. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in full green morocco with gilt lettering and the publisher's device on the spine, gilt decorations on all three edges, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges uncut, narrow gilt rule on the turn-in, plain endpapers, the Eric Gill wood-engravings serving as the two pages of the title page plus the six chapter headings; 10" tall; (1)-182, Perpetua type (designed by Eric Gill), limited edition of 200 copies total, this no. 22 of 62 bound in full morocco, signed by both author and artist on the limitation page, with Prospectus, lacking the separate suite of plates. ***CONDITION: Overall near fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, the leather binding is clean and supple, straight corners without rubbing, the interior is clean and bright (with a stray spot or two of foxing), and the volume is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is some sunning to the spine, a hint of rubbing to one of the spine ribs and to the bottom edges, else fine. The Prospectus is fine, with a hint of toning to the outer margins. ***CITATION: Chanticleer no. 111. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover our costs, please contact us for details. Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell; please contact us with any questions, we are here to help.
