No. 86 of 750 copies, quarto size, 45 pp. Eric Gill (1882-1940), English sculptor and printmaker, perhaps best known for his wood engravings, illustrated numerous fine press books; he designed and printed many wood engravings for The Golden Cockerel Press, and his work is characterised by sensual line work and elegent characters with a deep spirituality. This publication by The Golden Cockerel Press takes the text from the biblical text "The Song of Songs" and presents it with characters forming the story of the poetic passages; the text is divided into acts and scenes, as would an opera, with some initial capital letters printed in red throughout. Eric Gill's wood engravings portray the characters in a beautiful and intimate light, interweaved with the text, to bring a more modern light to the biblical poetry. As he himself wrote in "Art & Love", "Therefore the love-song and the love-picture which take human love as the symbol of Divine Love are everywhere recurrent and such love, so taken, is still rightly the theme of themes for poets and picture-makers". ___DESCRIPTION: Full white buckram, gilt lettering on the spine, fore- and bottom edges uncut, title page with red wood engraving "Holy Spirit as Dove" (P315) by Eric Gill, twenty wood engravings by Eric Gill throughout, some initial capitals in red, colophon with printer's device in black; Caslon O.F. type, Batchelor handmade paper, quarto size (10.25" by 7.75"), pagination: [1-8] 9-42 [43-44] [1 colophon], one of 750 copies, this number 86. ___CONDITION: Volume is near fine, white buckram is clean with only a few specks of soiling, with a strong, square text block with solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and entirely free of prior owner markings; corners are very gently bumped, sunning to the spine, a minute amount of wear to the head of the spine, very slightly cocked, and gilt lettering on the spine is rubbed in some places. ___CITATION: Gill no. 275; Chanticleer no. 31. ___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.
