Catalogue Note

Number 72 of 488 copies of this masterpiece of modern illustrated books.

"The Golden Cockerel book usually compared with the Doves Bible and the Kelmscott Chaucer. A flower among the best products of English romantic genius, it is also surely, thanks to its illustrator, Eric Gill, the book among all books, in which Roman type has been mated with any kind of illustration" (Chanticleer).
