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.
